Janis had packed enough for the trip to the beach with 3 babies.

Horns started blaring, Janis heard a police car.

She pulled over and stopped. A policeman had bottles in his hands.

“Witnesses say the bottles came out of this car.”

“Oh no, my little babies couldn’t have done that.”

Just then Janey pulls out another one and hits the cop in the belly.

Janis is horrified. The babies are giggling.

“Well what an arm they have, but throwing them at people is illegal. I’ll tell you what? Mama takes all the bottles up there and rolls up the windows from now on. Got it Mama?”

“Yes sir, I got it!”

      You are welcome Susan, glad you liked it. It was like 400 words to start and had to start chopping it up. Even with experience chopping it can be difficult to get down to the short shorts.
