Our house only has three bedrooms, and because we have three boys, two of them have to share a room every year. To make it as fair as possible, we rotate every summer.
This past year Johnny and Sean were roommates, and it didn’t go well. They were constantly arguing, snipping, and sniping at each other. So, this summer when it was time to rotate, there were Hallelujahs all around. Tommy (16) and Johnny (14) are now roommates and Sean (9) has his own room.
I just walked past Sean’s bedroom door, and he had already covered it with signs. Each of them are written in big block letters.
GO AWAY JOHNNY
FOR DIE-HARD BASEBALL FANS ONLY (Johnny is not a baseball fan)
KNOCK BEFORE ENTERING (with an arrow next to it saying: LOOK AT THIS SIGN)
YOU NEED AN ID TO GET IN
NO JOHNNY AT ALL
GET OUT JOHNNY
DO NOT ENTER JOHNNY
DAD, MOM, TOMMY & FRIENDS ONLY ARE ALLOWED IN
I’m not sure what he’s trying to say, but if you read between the lines you might get the impression that Sean doesn’t want Johnny to come into his room.
