fregley is ih py Phys E-d class a+ school
ahd he has +his whole nade-up lahguage. Like wheh he heeds +o go +o +h« ba+hroopi, he says—
Us kids have pre-Hy noch /inured Fregley ov+ by
"loday, X probably would have gohe up +o Cowleys oh py owh ahyway, because p«y broker Rodrick ahd his bahd were prac+icihg down ih -the basenehi.
Rod rick's band is REALLY aw/ul, and X can’+
S+and bein^ hone when -they're having rehearsals.
His band is called "Loaded Piaper," only i+'s swelled "Loded Piper" on Rodrick's Van.
Yoo ni^h+ -think he spelled rt -fha-t way +o make i+ look cooler, bw+ X be+
+old Rodrick how "Loaded Piaper" is really spelled, i+ woold be news +o hin.
Pad was against -the idea
Rodrick s+artin^ a band, birt Mon was all
She’s -the one who bough"t Rodrick his firsi drwn se+.
X think Mom has this idea that were all ^oin^
+o learn to play instruments and then become one of those ■family bands tike you see on TV.
Pad really hates heavy me+al, and that's the kind
music Kodrick and his band play. X don’t think Mom really cares what Rod nek plays or listens to, because to her, all music is the same. Xn fact, earlier today, Rodrick was listening to one of his CPs in the family room, and Mom came in and started dancing.
