1. Never wake anyone up before 9 AM.
"HEY EVERYONE WAKE UP!!!"
Silence in the hallway.
I grabbed my megaphone. "WAKE UP NOW!!!!"
Then I set down the megaphone and said in a calm voice, "I found a clue."
Immediately everyone came flying from their rooms into the hallway.
Natalie was holding her dart gun in one hand, teddy bear in the other, the Starlings were adapting a fighting stance, Hamilton was holding two baseball bats, and Alistair was wielding his cane.
I blinked. "Who wants breakfast?"
Suddenly it felt prudent to turn and run away...
2. Never forget to separate the darks and the lights in the washing machine.
"Daniel Arthur Cahill! This dress cost $6000 and it's ruined!"
"It's Dan. D-A-N!"
"And now my suit is pink?! You'll be getting the bill!"
I snickered. "You forget that I'm richer than you...I can afford it..."
3. Never remind the Kabras that you are richer than them.
"Dan! What happened?! How many poisons did they use on you?!"
"Um...all of them?"
4. Never try and help Sinead in her lab.
"Perfect. Thanks for your help, Dan! Nellie said she really needed this cleaning agent to help her remove crusty eggs."
"Wait WHAT?! I'm gonna have to eat stuff that touched what we just made?!"
"Um...well...I may have made some modifications to your recipie..."
5. Never tell Jonah that his music sucks (even if it does).
Hamilton and Jonah are chilling in the lounge, listening to Jonah's music.
"You sound like a girl, dude."
"Really? Thanks. I always wanted to sound like Miley Cyrus."
*Hamilton starts choking* "WHAT?! She's horrible!"
*Jonah's lips tarts to quiver* "M-mommy!!! Hammy was mean to my girlfriend!" *Runs out*
"You're dating WHO?!"
6. Never agree to help plan the annual Cahill reunion.
"Can you add Jake to the guest list for the Cahill reunion next week?"
I smirk. "Okay, Amy...whatever you say..."
One week later
"YOU NEVER TOLD ME ALISTAIR WAS HOSTING!!" Amy fainted.
"Who is he?"
I pretended not to care. "Oh, Jake is Amy's boyfriend.
Did you know that Ian is allergic to two things? Cats and the word 'Jake'. Because he went into anaphylactic shock after I said his name. Who knew?
