“Hey Cheese. Do you know what we haven’t done in a while, bro?” asked Mack.

“What’s that?” Cheese replied.

“Well actually we haven’t done a few things in a while. Like watch a movie, cook something together, AND we haven’t gardened in the longest. That’s what I was really getting at. We need to go talk to Mom” Mack said.

Cheese stopped him, “Wait! We need to get a plan together first. Let’s ask Mom for our own garden.”

Mack laughed, “Mom might give us a section of her garden but not her whole garden. What should we plant? I know that I want corn and basil. Basil smells good when it’s growing.”

“Ooooh! And I like mint and strawberries. Come on. Operation Find Mom starts now.” Commanded Cheese.

Mom wasn’t in their bedroom, downstairs watching TV, standing in the kitchen, sitting on the porch, nor reading on the back deck.

“Moooooooooom! The boys yelled throughout the house. The door to Dad’s Man cave slowly opened.

“Whaaaat?!” Mom sighed.

“Hey. What are you doing in Dad’s Man Cave?” asked Mack.

Mom sighed again, I was hiding from you and your brother for a bit. But you just ended my break. How can I help you?”
