Here is a little tip for any children, especially those who live here at The HomeFront, who decide to write on the wall:
When your mother comes to you and wants to know why you wrote the word SCRABBLE on the wall in the hallway, DO NOT DENY having done it. Your mother may be tired, but she is smart, and she knows that not only are you the only child in the house who can read and write, but you also love to play Scrabble. It also doesn't help your case when neither your brother or sister can hold a pencil long enough to form any letters, or that your mother, in her wilder preschool years, was known to deface some property with scribbles of her own.
Honesty really is the best policy - and she's totally on to you anyway, my friend.
