Part 1: The Confession…
Nate: Hey, uh, Dad? Can I talk to you for a minute? Okay, cool, cool. Listen, uh, when I was outside—bringing the rakes back into the house—I accidentally scratched your car. Now, hold on! Before you get angry, before you overreact, just let me explain! It’s not a big scratch—I could barely see it when I was standing five inches away—and you don’t have to worry about cost. I’ll pay for the damages. Granted, I haven’t gotten my allowance in almost three months but, still, I promise I’ll get the money.
Part 2: The Aftermath…
Alex: Aw man! What happened to you?
Nate: I told my dad that I scratched his car with a rake.
Alex: And he gave you a black eye?
Nate: No, actually, I got that from my neighbor, Mrs. Ostrinski. Turns out it was her car after all.
