Michelle, Nick and Alex Band Together to Overthrow Common Sense
The police have brought Alex to Michelle after a spot of shop lifting. Alex has told her that Michelle is his mom and that he lives there. Michelle, after some prodding and against her instinct to lie tells the cop that she is his biological mother and he doesn’t live there. The cop asks if she can leave him there and of course Michelle says yes.
Do we have a lawyer on the blog? I ask because I wonder if a minor is picked up by the cops are they duty bound to take said minor to their parents. Can the minor always just decide where he/she wants?
Shockingly Alex doesn’t like living at home. Ah home, the palace of parental rules and regulations. Where you have to tell your parents where you’re going and they make you responsible for your actions. What teenager wouldn’t like living at home. He puts his case to Michelle who of course thinks it is a great idea.
Wendy doesn’t like the idea. Nick thinks it is a great idea. Alex doesn’t live with Nick.
You know what else is awesome? Michelle tells Wendy that Alex will probably stop there for a couple nights. That’s realistic!
Oh wait, what about Ryan, you say? Well, he comes home to great news and then asks his mother if she has organized a swap.
Anyone else think Michelle is being silly and not really considering what Ryan will think of all this?
House Purchase Still On Despite Current Betting Slip Crisis
Jack, Molly, Tyrone, and Paul can’t find that betting slip and Tyrone worries that Paul will cast doubt on Tyrone’s “I gave it to Vera” story resulting in Jack backing out of the sale. Tyrone is a little paranoid, but can you blame him.
Tyrone and Molly wring their hands about it until Paul pops into the pub asking them to go see Jack. They run to the Old Rectory only to have Jack tell them that he’s done his part for the sale, why are they dragging their feet?
Worry not, new Duckworths. You’ll get your house.
