Clear Blue Water by Karen Montague-Reyes for August 26, 2007
Owen: Mom, do you have a police record? Eve: What? No, I don't have a record! Manny: Um... yes, you do. Eve: No, I don't. Trust me. Manny: Yes you do. You were arrested last year - had to go to court and everything. Eve: Yes, but that wasn't a felony. I got sentenced to anger management classes. I got no jail time, hence, no record. Manny: Sorry to burst you bubble, Evie "Misdemeanor" Merriwether-Torres, but that arrest will follow you forever. Look! Your mugshot's still up on the police department's web site! Eve: Oh my heavens! Owen: Coooool! Ivy, come quick! Mom's an outlaw! Ivy: Let's print it up! Eve: No good can come from this, Manny! Manny: Kids - don't you show this web site to your friends! I mean it! Owen: OK, Dad. We promise. Eve: Rotten kids... way to un-ring that bell, Manny. Manny: The PTA will not pleased.
