It’s still raining! I’m bored. Want to do something together?

Bake another cake?

Not if it’s like the last one.

Is it my fault that sugar and salt look so much alike?

Wish I’d had a camera when Dad took his first bite.

Yeah, we still need to make that up to him.

Hey! Do you have any plans for tomorrow?

Yeah, JJ and I were going to get together. Why?

Dad was planning to clean up Mrs. Carter’s yard for her. What if we help him out instead?

Hmm. Clean up or play with friends? Clean up or friends? Tough choice.

I know! What if we cleaned up with our friends? I’m sure they’d be up for it.

Especially if we bribe them with cake! Except this time I’m measuring the sugar!
