Who Broke the Rules?

I like rules. Rules are good. Rules are put into place in various capacities to control or guide behavior. Rules are meant to protect people, to keep each other safe, and to provide order to our society. Without rules it would be anarchy! I am big on schedule and routine and certain household rules, like no shoes in the house, don't hit your sister, attempt to use silverware when eating, not going to bed angry with each other, taking turns to clear the table, feeding the dog daily, cleaning your rooms weekly so that the floor can be at least seen and vacuumed, these to name a few. Then there are the unwritten rules like treat each other with respect, close the fridge after opening, put the seat down after use, read at bedtime. Rules help to keep things running smoothly... without them life would be so much less mundane!

But sometimes rules are just meant to be broken! Like whoever said NO dogs in the pool?? Just don't tell Dad, or will he find out the next time he cleans it??

What dog in the pool? Don't know what you're talking about.
