The Parable of the Perfect Alibi

The three barrio schoolboys were tardy as usual. Like in the past, they tarried along the way instead of proceeding directly to school. A flock of birds attracted them. They spent the better part of the morning firing their slingshots. They were late for school by almost an hour. It was not the first time. But somehow, they always put one over their young city-bred teacher. They always had good alibis.
Their excuses were endless. They also knew the teacher was getting suspicious and fed up. So the three boys made sure their next explanation was fool-proof. They tell to the teacher they saw carabao in pain and it was fractured. Your hinacy is enough said the teacher with anger.
She spread out one on each corner of the room. She told them to write a short essay indicating which of the four legs of the carabao got fractured. And be specific whether it is ahead or front leg and whether right or left. Moral Lesson: As good Christians, we should learn to own our faults at any cost. We have to learn to admit our errors in the most humble way and ask forgiveness for them.
