Crime: The boys were jumping on McGee's freshly made bed. With shoes on. She told them to get down. Lefty stuck his tongue out at her. Happy took off his shoe and threw it at her head. She forgot to dodge. Punishment: Lefty had to bite his own tongue. [Editor's Note: You stick it out, and someone upsmacks your chin. -Kate] Happy was the unhappy walking target of the Nerf Machine Gun. It holds 40 sponge bullets. She made it last a really long time.
Crime: Lefty was reading a book, and kept asking McGee how to pronounce this word and that word. She was really done helping, but opted -- rather than getting up and leaving the room -- to sigh loudly when he asked her how to pronounce "nervously" and said "Maybe you're just too stupid to read that book." And of all the S words in the world, this one is the Avada Kedavra.
The next day she made sure she told us just how horrible we all are. Of course, now it's our favorite punishment. Three days ago, all three of them put each other in it. Lefty for smacking Happy, McGee for laughing at Lefty, and Happy for yelling "shut up! You're in Quiet now!" and making an X with his hands over his mouth, then punching both of them.
They gestured at each other for 10 minutes before I left the room. There was a lot of stomping going on, and a lot of air slamming (two doors are missing...) but no one ever said a word.
It was the best 45 minutes in the history of ever. I celebrated by watching Law & Order. You know...research.
