Sometimes Being A Prosecutor Is Easy

A little domestic law enforcement scene this morning.

Self: What's all this shrieking about?

Seven Year Old: She [the nine year old] hit me on the head with a DVD box!

Self (to nine year old): Well?

Nine Year Old: I did not! I was just holding the box near her head!

Hook her, book her, cook her.

The squabbling I just write off as something siblings do. As for the attempted alibi, I dunno whether I should be pleased that the gel felt constrained to stay somewhere within visiting distance of the truth, or concerned that she is such an inept storyteller.

Please! Be glad she's so bad at it. My daughter was an excellent prevaricator. Fortunately, my son was really bad at it. All I had to do was look into his eyes, and I could tell.
