Sissy did a locker inspection today. It didn’t turn out well for Piper. Sissy told on her after school.
“So I was walking through the hall today and I saw Piper’s coat hanging out of her locker. Being the awesome big sister that I am, I stopped to open the door and tuck in her coat.”
“Sounds like you were spying,” I said.
“Guess what I found?” Sissy reported. “Apples. Rotting apples. In a plastic bag. On her snack shelf. That’s disgusting.”
“I kind of like them,” Piper said. “They’re all brown and mushy.”
“Why do you have rotting apples in your locker?” I had to ask. I couldn’t stop myself.
“You sent them for snack but we didn’t have time to eat snack that day so I keep them there,” Piper explained. Perfectly logical. “It was awhile ago.”
“Why didn’t you throw them away?” I asked.
“Ewww,” Sissy said, “that’s totally gross.”
“I offered them to Daniel, but he didn’t want them.” Giggle, giggle. “So then I truth or dared Kieron to eat them. He wouldn’t either.”
“What was the truth?”
Piper thought about that. “Okay. I dared and dared Kieron to eat them. He still wouldn’t do it.”
“You need to throw them away, Piper,” I said.
Piper thought some more. “Maybe.”
