Joey: The young teen said, “Ah, my parents are away and out of the country for the summer! I shall have peace and sleeping in and much Nintendo time.”
Joey: Then his aunt said, “Say what? You’ll pull down a job at one of the local fast food places and pull in some money, because I’m not subsidizing your Netflix subscription.”
Kiln: ((What is a Netflix?))\
Mette: ((The vidscreen Scroll-Readers of the Elders.))
Joey: And then a message arrived that freed him from any worries about dropping fries at the local Burger King.
Joey: Except it was from his parents, saying he should come and visit them.
