BACK AND FORTH

Pick – a – pock –a – pick – a – pock – a ???!

What are you boys doing up there? You’re not getting into trouble are you?

No, Auntie Mame. We’re playing.

You know, I love you both as if you were my own children. It was challenging enough when I took Patrick in.  Since I found he had a brother, Robert, you two have kept me hopping.  Be careful with that table tennis game.  I’m either going to have to buy another case of balls, or hire someone to climb up and retrieve the ones you’ve lodged in my chandelier.

We will, Auntie Mame!

    Hahahahaha! Hilarious use of the prompt, Archon. I laughed out loud.
    Maybe Auntie Mame has more balls than the boys have at the moment … um, let me put that another way …

    Poor old auntie Mame but I’m sure she treasures the boys more than the chandelier
