That's Legal

In my Drama class, the 5th graders were acting out solo improv's where I give them a situation with an obstacle and they have to act their way through the obstacle.

For example, they come home from school and have to use the restroom very bad, but when they get to the door, they realize they forgot their key.

I tell the boys that, no, they can't just urinate on the ground--that's against the law in the city.

Some went to a neighbor's house, some climbed through a window, others broke down the door.

Floyd explains his scene thus:

"See, what I did was, I lit a match and set the grass on fire, then I pee'd on the grass to put out the fire, then when the cops came, I was innocent!"
