A personal disaster kit
Goes for a run
Plays the piano
Goes out with friends
Locks himself in his study
Henry David Thoreau

Mary Higgins Clark
He forgot to do his homework.
It was a teacher's planning day.
His family was going on vacation.
He had the chicken pox.
Because he doesn't have any friends.
Because he is always getting into fights at school.
Because he doesn't talk at school.
Because he does mean things to his sister.
