“What’s wrong with Robbie?“ Abby wondered. “He was spending too much time alone in the family garage.”

“Ahhhh!” She’d hear him moan sometimes.

“Dad, is Robbie sick? she asked. “He’s acting really weird lately.”

“Don’t worry about it, Abby. He’s a growing boy.”

One evening, unable to contain her curiosity, Abby followed her brother to the garage.

She opened the door and found him in shorts sweating profusely.

“Robbie, what are you doing?”

“Mind your own business, little sister. Don’t you see I’m working out to qualify for the soccer team?”

“Oh, ok!” She rolled her eyes and quickly left.
