So I opened the Bback door and sat my son FdownN.C.. So he tried his best Bto stop me from coming Fin, N.C. I say move yourself man, Band start your driving! F He was very angry, but he Basked; where to? I said Ftake me to the station; my train Bleaving soon. So Fguess what he did to me, Bjust for spite; He FstopN.C.ped at every single traffic light. He Ftook the wrong turn and the Blong way, too, He Fstopped at the bar, just to Buse the loo. When FI got to the station, it was Ball in vain; Good Fgolly, good gosh, I say, I Bmiss my train.
