Homework & Birds...

Little Man told me today, "I don't have my homework because.. well, you'll never believe this, but a bird ate it!"
Ummmm... excuse me?
"I was doing my homework on the patio and I went inside to go to the bathroom, when a bird swooped down and took my homework."
But it's been raining nonstop for the past three days, how were you doing your homework in the rain?
"I was using an umbrella."
Let me clear this up, you were doing your homework on the patio, under an umbrella, when you went inside and a bird swooped down and took your homework?
Riiiiight. And here I thought you might tell me your dog ate it.
"I don't have a dog. Plus, a dog could get really sick if he ate paper."
If I call your mom, will she say the same story?
"Nope. She was in the bathroom when it happened."
Sure. Right. I believe you.
