Anyway, when I phoned him today, the first thing he does is breathe heavily into the phone and with a shaky voice tells me "I got mugged again, mom".
This is one thing I have had to get used to with Bradley. He is an excellent actor and has the older teens and adults at social occasions rolling with laughter with his little skits and clever jokes. He also puts this ability to good use to simulate illness to get out of going to school or doing something he doesn't want to do. He knows all about the little boy who cried wolf but it hasn't stopped him from trying his luck.
