Overheard From the Back of the Van

While driving home from Tae Kwon Do last night, Lev and Alek saw a couple of police cars down the block from our house. The cops were arresting 3 teenage hooligans (hehehe, hooligans). As you can imagine; Alek's face was pressed right up against the back window of the car.

Alek (very concerned): "Dad are the cops arresting those kids?"
Lev: "Yes, but they aren't kids, they're teenagers."
Alek: "Oh. Are they going to go to jail? Forever?"
Lev: "They are probably going to jail, but not forever, teenagers don't usually go to jail unless what they did is REALLY serious. They might get out to do community service."
Alek: "Oh. How will they get out?"
Lev: "Well, they will have to explain themselves to a judge and then the judge will decide what happens."
Alek (earnestly): "Boy, I sure hope my friends and I never get arrested. We have a hard enough time explaining ourselves to the principal!"

Way to miss out on the bigger picture Alek. This kid of mine sure does make me laugh!
