When my mother wasn’t home, my sister thought she was the boss. She always told my brother and I what we should and shouldn’t do. If we didn’t listen to her, she would tell our mom and we would get into trouble. Last week, she was watching us while mom was at work. We had the day off school and had to stay inside. The ball was in sight, and neither of us could resist throwing it around. She came into the living room screaming like a Banshee, and telling us we were going to break the window or air conditioning unit, or both. Naturally, we didn’t listen to her, but we wished we had. An hour later, the ball flew through the window. Not only did it break the window, but it also broke the air conditioning unit. We knew mom was going to be angry, and we should have known it would go easier on us if we told her what happened. We weren’t that smart. Instead, we stayed in our room until mom found the ball, the broken window, and the broken air conditioning unit. Our sister tried to cover for us, but it wasn’t working. Mom told her she should have been more responsible than letting us play ball in the house. We came downstairs and told mom our sister had tried to tell us not to play ball in the house, but we didn’t listen. We were just being idiots, and it wasn’t her fault the air conditioning unit was broken. Mom was angry, but she was proud we had told her the truth.
