Wednesday – Story Day – AKA Hump Day


Wednesday Story Day again. Last week we left Alexis and Ben wondering if they could convince Alexis’ father to give them C4 explosives even if Mrs. Worthe poisons him against the kids. We found out Alexis has some photos that she would be willing to share with her dad as a way of turning him against Mrs. Worthe. These people make up some family don’t they? Well, we had better get over there to see what happens. Alexis and Ben are at her parents house.

“Hi, daddy.”

“Well hello, Alexis and Ben. What a surprise. Come on in.”

“Thanks, Mr. Worthe.”

“You can call me Alex Ben.”

“Yes, sir. I mean yes Sir Alex.”

That a boy. How are you, Alexis.”

“Doing okay dad. Ben and I have a little business to discuss.”

“Well let’s go into the den.”

“Is mom home?”

“No, she had to run a couple of errands. She’ll be back shortly. Have a seat. You two need anything to drink or eat?”

No thanks daddy. We are in a little bit of a hurry.”

“Okay then shoot. What’s this business you mentioned?”

“You know Ben and I are planning to make  a statement at the Student Union.”

“Your mother mentioned it, Yes.”

“Well, you know we need some C4 right?”

“Yes. I think she mentioned about one hundred twenty pounds.”

“Yes, that’s right. We pan about thirty for each corner.”

“Should make a nice hole.”

“Ha ha ha. That’s pretty funny daddy.”

“It was? I didn’t mean it as a joke.”

“What do you mean?”

“I am a little nervous about you two making a mistake and getting blown up with the building.”

“I know mom said as much.”

“Also I have to worry about what to say to the feds when the stuff goes off. It will be traced to me.”

“We have that figured out. A robbery.”

“A robbery?”

“Yes, you call and report a robbery. You know you did a regular audit and were missing one hundred twenty pounds. Then boom. It shows up. No one will suspect you.”

“Hmm. Might work. Then how about you two idiots blowing yourselves up?”

“Sir I have studied this explosive and can set the percussion timers, and we will be long gone.”

“Let me think. It sounds like it might work. You know I can’t deny you when you ask for something, Alexis.”

“Oh hello darlings. What a delightful surprise.”

“OMG. Hello, mom. Back early I see.”

“Good thing too if what I just heard is correct.”

“Mrs. Worthe. Nice to see you.”

“Shut up Ben. We need to talk.”


  1. Oh no! It was going so well, too.

    1. Fly in the ointment.

  2. And the walking headache returns. Where’s an empty elevator shaft when you need one? 😀

      1. It’s been a while since I groaned and cursed at the appearance of a character. Nice job.

      2. Thanks. What was the curse word? No don’t tell me.

      3. Good idea. Best not to repeat such language.

  3. “And daddy, I think we can take care of another problem…” Who would miss her?

    1. Ha ha ha. Thanks Dan

  4. Uh-oh. Enter Trouble! (As if these kids won’t be enough, should their little scheme be allowed to proceed!)

  5. 😀 😀 😀 Oh, oh. Alexis, dear. You’re not planning what I think you are, ARE you?
    This sounds an interesting development. ❓

    1. Um let’s hope the kettle does not boil over.

      1. Hope? There might be hope? 😀 😀

      2. Ha. Makes more sense. 🙂

  6. Thank everything for Mom!!

  7. Ah… So the pictures are still waiting, up Alexis’ designer sleeve.
    John, I keep wondering if the big twist will have it turn out that this despicable bunch of characters are actually doing something good. A sudden shift of awareness that we’re in a SiFy world where all the nastiness creates butterflies… LOL (Yeah i know…) Hugs! 😀

    1. I should actually have you take a swing at an episode. I liked this twist. 🙂 Hugs .

      1. LOL. You’re too kind, John. I don’t have your flare for this kind of thing.
        What a day… back to the grind. Have a thriving Thursday.

  8. Plans foiled, thanks to Mom. You know we moms have eyes in the back of our heads, and huge ears.

  9. This is proof that the kids ARE alright.

    1. Hmmm. We will have to wait and see.
