Tips On Getting Away With Crime - For 4 Year Olds

Well first of all, please remember you can't trust your older brother - he's a narc. I know this because I'm the one who made him a narc. That being said, there are some important factors to remember.
If you are comitting a very specific crime, like OH SAY......dumping out of the sugar onto a COOKIE SHEET........
  • First off don't leave any of your initials written in sugar. See, that's just a bad idea.
  • Don't go rushing OUT of the kitchen when you hear me arriving - you gotta play it off better than that.
  • But lastly, and this one is MOST important...........

IF you have dumped all of the sugar out onto a cookie sheet sitting on the stove........IT IS IMPERATIVE that you not stroll to the breakfast table crusted with sugar like a gum drop. Because when it is covering your face, your hands, your arms........well........the trail leads right to YOU.

But I do applaud your bravado in just acting like everything was cool.
