Strange things were happening at Kathy’s house.
She’d look to her four sons and ask them who left the lights on again, who made the mess, who ate the snacks, who broke another ornament.
Each time they’d all answer “Not me!”
This scenario sounds very familiar, doesn’t it?
Recently, Elfie Oodle had arrived at her home, and she’d ask him whether he knew anything about the trouble going on. His sweet smile made her think he was an innocent bystander with no details to give.
Then she got wise to his ways.
She figured out who had the magic to fly up to those lights.
She heard fingerless hands digging when the boys were asleep.
She saw tiny yogurt footprints on the kitchen counter.
She knew her boys wouldn’t dare go near her vintage ornaments.
The only thing she has left to figure out, is whether Elfie Oodle was the one causing the “Not me!” Trouble all these years, or if he can only be blamed for the recent rash of messes and mayhem.
I suspect kids across the globe are waiting with bated breath, hoping Elfie Oodle gets all the blame…
