16 year olds get to do what they want, right?
At least that’s what Jack has high hopes for…
Jack: When I’m 16 can I do whatever I want??
me: Within reason, but no, not really.
Jack: Like can I raid someones house?
me: Jack! Seriously…
Jack: Not in a bad way. It’s not a bad thing, really! Oh forget it…
me: Sigh…raiding is bad. It’s like stealing, right?
Jack: No, I mean raid in a good way.
me: Still no.
Jack: Okay then, first things first. I need spiky bands on my gloves, can I get those when I’m 16?
me: Maybe. Sounds scary.
Jack: It’s totally cool!
me: Where exactly are you getting these ideas?
Jack: Magic Treehouse book #5!!!!
me: Those are school recommended, right? Sheesh…
Jack: We get our best ideas from books that schools recommend…
