It was late in the night, everybody was asleep except for my brother and me. We decided to play a trick on our parents.
We crept into our parents'
bedroom. I took a large sheet of construction paper and drew a morning
scene and hanged it on the window. Meanwhile, my brother advanced the
time on the alarm clock to just ten minutes before seven. We went back
to our bedroom and waited.
Soon the alarm clock rang. My parents jumped out of bed. My father went to the bathroom to brush his teeth while my mother came over to our room to wake us. She was surprised when she found us awake and laughing.
My parents were angry and scolded us for playing a trick on them at such a late hour and for waking them up. Nowadays they locked their bedroom door when they go to bed.
