It was a day, just like any other day, until a dame walked in through my door—a dame by the name of Mom.
Evan, come look at this.
Do you know who did this?
Don't worry, Mom. I'll find the criminal that did this.
The Case of the Broken Vase
There are clues everywhere. Whoever had done this had made a mess. The clues told me a story only I could read. It was time to start asking questions.
I think we both know what's going on.
Why do you have my shoe?
I found it overturned at the crime scene. And you're the only one in the house with big feet.
I do have big feet.
And inside your shoe, I found this.
Fine. I was practicing my dance moves. I didn't want anyone to know, and I had taken off my shoes so I could practice my moonwalk. Then, I heard a weird noise like someone approaching. I got scared and ran out of the room, leaving my shoes there. So you caught me; I was dancing, but I didn't break that vase.
It turns out DaddyTube was only guilty of busting a move. So it was on to the second clue.
I know it was you, Jillian. I found the broken carrot.
So what? It could've been anyone's carrot.
Don't lie to me. You've been caught "orange-handed." Admit you broke the vase.
Fine. It was my carrot, but I didn't break the vase. I was practicing for the annual carrot-eating contest. That's when I heard a strange sound like someone approaching. I ran through the living room and must have dropped a carrot, but it was in one piece when I left it. So I'm guilty of nothing but a big appetite.
So it wasn't the little sister. That left only three choices—MommyTube, me, or my invisible friend, Wallace. But Wallace has been on vacation in Hawaii, so it couldn't have been him.
並不是妹妹做的。那只剩下三個選項了－－老媽、我，或是我的隱形朋友，Wallace。但 Wallace 還在夏威夷度假，所以不可能是他。
All right, Evan. Did you do it?
Good enough for me.
That left only one person—the dame who started it all—MommyTube.
What am I doing here? I found the broken vase—
Which made it the perfect crime. Let me explain what happened. When you came to see me, you were limping like you had just fallen. I think you were practicing your skateboarding in the house. You went into the living room, tripped over Dad's shoe, stepped on Jillian's carrot then knocked the vase off the shelf, where it smashed into the floor.
那讓它變成一個完美的犯罪。讓我解釋發生了什麼事。當妳來找我的時候，妳一跛一跛地，好像妳剛剛跌倒了。我想妳是在家裡練習溜滑板。妳進到客廳，絆到了爸爸的鞋子，踩到 Jillian 的胡蘿蔔，接著把花瓶從架上撞倒，它就砸到地上了。
Fine, it was me. I did it. I broke the vase, trying to be a great skateboarder. But you know what? I'm allowed to break things and skateboard in the house. I'm a grown-up.
Mom, you're grounded.
Good job, Evan.
No problem, Dad.
And that's the story of The Case of the Broken Vase.
Was he talking to himself?
