Suave Interrupted

Once again, Frankie thought he had found the perfect time and place to nap, but once again, we find Suave Interrupted as a Boom Boom approached.

Frankie can best be described as the reluctant ruler. As the oldest boy, the other boys follow his rules, but he prefers to just be left alone. Unfortunately for him, that rarely happens.

As soon as he relaxes, at least one of the boys come racing up to see if he needs anything. You know, like a good wrestling match. How do you think he answers?

Go away, Boom Boom. Haven't I explained this before?

    Poor Frankie-all he wants to do is get a nice nap! BUT as the ruler he must dole out some hard facts!! He looks mean and angry but that’s just for show. I hope Boom Boom learned his lesson?

      “Boom Boom” and “learn” do not go together. Just saying.
