As we sat on the bed, we looked down and did see, Chief Weazit appear, he was drinking some tea. "Oh, hi there you two", he looked up as he said, "I ate some of your lunch, had some tea with some bread. Catching that Slouch was a tiring job, so I took a quick break, loved your corn on the cob." But Milly and I, didn't really much care, that Slouch must be gone, with the bag that read, "Rare." Chief Weazit he waved to Weazit's under the bed, they came out pulling a rope, with beads of sweat on their head. At the end of the rope, was the Slouch all tied up, Chief Weazit just smiled, then drank from his cup. I saw the recipe book in the Slouches old suit, I reached down and I grabbed it, he gave out a hoot! I cracked open the door, and peeked down the hall, there was nobody there, I gave the Weazit's a call. They pulled the Slouch out of the room to the bag, and I laughed as I said, "Oh boy, what a drag!" But the Slouch didn't laugh, didn't smile, nor did grin, he just stared at the bag, as each Weazit jumped in. Chief Weazit then said, "We must go, it's been fun, we will take him to Slouchville, be seeing you son." He jumped into the bag, as the rope he did pull, and the Slouch was pulled in, that pink bag was quite full. The pink bag it shook, floated up to the roof, then made a loud noise, and was gone in a "poof!" Milly's mom she came into the room and did say, "What's wrong with you children, you're so noisy today". She looked at the table and said, "What a mess", she looked over at Milly, "There's tea on your dress"! Milly's mom shook her head, and just walked away, Milly gave me a smile, everything was O.K.. To come to a lunch uninvited is rude, for there is a chance, that there's not enough food. But an uninvited Slouch is the worse kind of guest, and Milly and I hoped, we'd seen the last of that pest.
