Sitting at the table, Rhonda stirs her coffee very slowly and takes in a few deep breaths.

“Mom! Toby is at it again,” Carrie yells as she rushes into the kitchen with a broken CD in her hand.

“What now,”  Rhonda asks?

“He broke my favorite CD! What do I have to do to stop him from being such a little brat?”

Later, while their parents are out having dinner, Carrie leans over Toby and says, “the green eye of the universe is watching you right now!”

Toby shrinks back further against the couch and stares at her with a look of panic.  He manages to whisper, “what does it look like?”

“It’s big, round, a beautiful shade of green, and extremely powerful!  It can see everything that is happening in this world and it is looking at you right this moment!”

Rhonda is amazed to learn that everything went well and Toby was already in bed sleeping when they got home.

  1. Interesting way of using the picture. How funny children can be you tell them certain scary made up things and they believe you. A good thing in this case!


  2. Great story! Toby is going to be well behaved until he realizes it was a big fib and will be worse than he was before. LOL! At least it is working for now and she can think up something else for later. I enjoyed this story Jessie.
