To Peach’s delight, his dessert this evening contained a message.
You see…every morning, Peach insists on staying in his jammies and wearing them to school. And every morning I ask “is today ‘Jammie Day?’ I don’t think today is ”
‘Jammie Day’ because Ms. Brooke didn’t say ‘Tomorrow is “Jammie Day,” friends’ when I picked you up yesterday.”
Peach bit into his fortune cookie tonight only to discover that there was a slip of paper concealed inside. He asked me to read it and I made the decision to tell a lie. Not a white lie, but a complete and utter falsehood.
When I read the
lie message to him, Peach’s eyes lit up. Followed by a quick inhalation of air.
There is no “Jammie Day” tomorrow! Dat’s what it says on my message.
Yes, Love, that is what is says on your message.
Did I do something awful by lying to Peach?? Does Frume Sarah advocate dishonesty?
What do you think??
