Too clever by half

I was watching the kids in the basement when I had to pop upstairs for a minute. I closed up my laptop and left it on the couch, as all of the kids were absorbed in various other activities. When I went back down just a couple of minutes later. Alice had found my laptop, opened it up, and was in the middle of typing vigorously in to my e-mail program. It doesn’t look like she actually sent anything out, but maybe she’s clever enough to erase her tracks as well.

Ah, that must explain the email I got the other day…

To: [Address Book Recipient]
Please help! My father is a completely insane. And my mother, she, well, she seems to LIKE him!

I have to get out of this place. Now! C&C want to come with me. They’ve put up with this place even longer than I have!

Uh-oh. I hear him coming. I have to cover my tracks before he gets back.

Please help!

That’s weird. Are you sure you didn’t get that from snooping in LeAnn’s e-mail?

I know, I thought it odd too. What was I doing in your address book? I assumed you had been signing me up for all sorts of on-line special offers in your sprare time and added me to your address book for efficiency reasons. I can’t explain it. I’m just telling you what happened. It’s not like I’m going to make something like this up!

And, in any case, I checked with LeAnn and she got one too.
