Black father and son

My uncle Al is a retired school teacher. I would always hate when my dad would call him and ask him to babysit me. You probably wonder why? Well, I will tell you. You see, I could fool both my parents most of the time with fantastic stories to explain something that happenned to me or get away with something that I did. But, this was not the case with my uncle Al. It seems that everytime I would try to fool him, he would always know. I could not get away with anything around him. I found this interesting, for I could tell my teachers anything at school and they always believed me. Not with my uncle Al though, he always knew the real story. Let me share with you a few examples of my experiences with the babysitter of death.
