Had he done his homework?
Well he tells me the only requirement due today was that he should have read three times.
He reads all the time. So why the detention?
Because his loser parents didn't sign his homework diary attesting to his reading.
But before you crack open the violin case to play Hearts and Flowers, bear in mind that homework detention comprises of half an hour of doing the missing homework which, for Ethan, was reading, his favourite thing to do.
