Got Milk Duds?   

1     "Don't eat too many milk duds!" Mom remarked to Ashleigh as she walked through the family room. "And remember to take care of the garbage." Mom was doing errands around the whole house. Ashleigh was in the middle of her favorite program, and with the TV and her little brother nearby being noisy, it was easy to ignore her mom. She just kept watching her show and munching on Milk Duds.
 
2     About an hour later, it was apparent that Ashleigh may have eaten a little TOO many Milk Duds. She felt the symptom of a stomachache coming on and went to lie down on her bed. It seemed like the interior of her stomach was one big glob of milk duds.
 
3     "What are you doing?" her mom asked when she came up from the cellar and passed her bedroom. "I don't feel too good." "Did you take care of the garbage?" Great -- it was like mom didn't even hear her. "No, I forgot." Ashleigh struggled up and went to do the chore she detested. By the time she got back in the house, she was feeling pretty rough. And no one seemed to care.
