The Jar



In response to the Friday Fictoneer

"Where have you been?," his mom asked with a concern. "Your little sister is looking for you," she continued handing him over the balloons. "Set them up quick."

He was tying the last balloon when he heard kids screaming down the front yard. Behind them was his friend.

They bumped their fists and the friend asked, "Did you get the credit card numbers?"

"Yup. I can't believe people still shop on unsecured sites. I put the note slips in the jar."

"Time for Musical Chair. The kid who goes out, performs what's in the note slip!", hollered his mom from the next room.

I wonder what will happen if mum realises what's going on! Nicely done, Jaya.

You've put the finger on it! Moms work hard at trying to have the kids have fun to no avail :-) Nicely done. Thanks.

I shudder to think how a kid would act out "electric guitar for $500". Then again, that might be simple.

So the kid whose name comes up does shopping from unsecured sites using stolen credit card numbers? That is not a game for children!

Dear Jaya,

Here's hoping the kid gets caught before there's real trouble.

Shalom,

Rochelle
