See this lazy child.

Hay God!

Eat what?

Is this child mad?

Hian! What is it?

6. When you think you’ve finished and your mother invents new work for you.

See these ones.

This one has passed brunch.

Can’t risk it oh!

Is it fair?

11. The worst Saturday morning chore:


12. When NEPA waits for you to complete all your chores before they take light.
