Since his regular shift was set to start shortly, Tearley decided to stay at the hospital instead of going home. He pulled his latest medical journal, Things to Try Out in the Operating Room, from his back pocket. After all, reading was never a waste of time!

"Morning, Mamma!" she called out, hurrying over to jump on Benito's rocking horse.
She loved the bright colors, exactly the opposite of the colors in the master bathroom!
"Uh oh!" Benito said, padding out of the kitchen, dodging her feet.
She thought she would enjoy staying home more!
Then she noticed the puddles of water.
"Oh no!" she gasped, setting the plate on the counter top. "The dishwasher is broken!" she groaned, spotting the problem immediately.
"Uh oh!" Benito repeated.
It took a few times to get an answer.
Davina turned when she saw her friend. "WILLARD! What are you still doing here?" she asked.
Willard shrugged. "Just got out of my Scouts after school activity," he told her. "My mom made me join."
Willard might've had something to do with her signing up.
"Wanna play tag?" Willard asked suddenly.
"Paper, rock, scissors to see who goes first!" Davina told him.
Willard shook his head. "Nuh uh!" he said, thumping Davina on the shoulder. "You're it!"
Davina flew forward and gave Willard a big hug. "See you tomorrow!" she told him eagerly.
