Joey says I'm a liar. He says I'm lying about moon trees – I swear it, we have them. You know, how trees can look when the moon is a big? Like sticks. The trees, I mean. I don't think all trees look like black sticks, just some. The ones with not so many leaves. Those are the moon trees. My Gramma even told me they're real; that some astronaut took seeds into space then brought them back to plant on Earth.
But I don't believe Joey, when he says he has some tree that's the only one on the whole planet. The whole planet! That it's ginormous, bigger than his house. Not that I've been to his house. His desk is just next to mine at school. He draws dragons on his and gets in trouble a lot. He even got on Red and had to bring a note home. You know it's bad, when a note goes home to your mom.
Anyways, my mom used to call me a liar too. Well, she wouldn't say it to my face, but she'd sit me down to talk. About why she found that little Batman thing in my pocket -- I forget she empties my pants before she washes them, and I was mad. But I couldn't tell her I stole it from some bin at the shoe store where she gets my sneakers. That made her madder because, well...I mean, she knew I took it. She had it in her hand.
Anyways, I was only like four. Four year olds take stuff so I wouldn't say I was lying....anyways, she made a big deal about how I could go to jail for taking stuff and made me go back to the store and give it to the man who always gives me a balloon after we buy his shoes. I didn't even know what it was until I saw other Batmans and even Spidermans in the holes of a shoe -- now I know those are crocs, because I asked a girl in the fourth grade why she had these holes in her rubber shoes....
Anyways, the man just shrugged, said no big deal, it happens all the time. That little kids just take those little shoe things. My mother didn't like that he shrugged, and that made her madder and go on and on and oooonnnn about how wrong stealing stuff is.
Ok, so I don't steal anymore. And I don't lie. Or if I'm not always telling the truth, then I just don't say anything. Like when my computer time is up but I sneak back onto the computer when she's in the shower to build one more wall on my Minecraft house. It's so cool, all underground, with torches and everything. And if you build it right, the monsters outside can't get you.
