“Hey boys! Come downstairs right quick! I’ve got an announcement!” yelled Dad from the bottom of the stairs.

Mack and Cheese came rumbling down the stairs.

“Hey Dad! What’s up?” said Cheese.

“What’s the announcement?” asked Mack all out of breath.

“I don’t know how to put it any other way. You guys have a dentist appointment tomorrow.” Dad announced.

“What? But tomorrow is Tuesday! Our appointments are on Thursdays, Dad!” complained Cheese.

Dad responded. “I know. I know. I was confused too when they called. But we had to reschedule your original appointments when we went to Jamaica… I mean Charleston.”

“Wait! What? You guys went to Jamaica without us? Is that why we went to Nana’s house for two weeks? That’s not fair.” fussed Mack.

Dad looked at Mom. Mom looked back at Dad with a ‘We’re busted!’ face.

Dad smiled, “Hey, you guys are getting off of the subject. I just wanted to say that your dentist appointment is tomorrow and your Mother and I love you very much!”

Mack and Cheese looked at each other and went back upstairs.
