"Hey squirt!"

Don came home, fresh from the high school baseball diamond, and ruffled Charlie's hair as he passed on his way to the kitchen.

"The prodigal jock returns," Charlie's friend Jakob muttered, wrinkling his nose, "with all the attendant smells."

"I'd say I don't notice, but when he takes off his shoes?" Charlie made a face and waved a hand in front of him, miming a bad smell.

Don reappeared, taking a huge bite of a bagel in one hand while the other swooped down to the table and stole Charlie's glass of lemonade.

"Hey!"

"Sorry, squirt! Better luck next time!"

"And he always steals your drink!" Jakob marveled. "What an ass! Why don't you ever do something about it?"

"Who says I haven't?" Charlie responded with a wink, pointing towards the backyard where Don had just gone outside. They watched him pause to take a deep drink out of the glass then spew it all over the lawn followed by a few choice expletives.

Jakob roared with triumphant laughter.

"Awesome! What did you do?"

"Oh, the lemonade might be a bit tart..." Charlie grinned mischievously. "That tends to happen when you, ahem, 'forget' to put in any sugar!"
