Real Life Tom Sawyer

Like many summers before, the wild raspberry fields drew me away from white-washing the fence. So I'd scamper off to the fields in my painting overalls and discreetly sneak back to work. I paid dearly for my surrendering to temptation though, as I contracted the rash and blisters caused by poison ivy.

What was all the more insulting was catching poison ivy in the middle of winter that year, because I had worn the same painting overalls to paint my bedroom walls! The oil that comes from the leaves can stay on objects such as clothing for many years! Take heed of the weed of bad deed!!!!
