Local 9-year-old boy, John Greene, has been told time and time again to stop with the faces.
“If I’ve told him once, I’ve told him a thousand times,” his mother says. “Like all kids, he thinks it can’t happen to him. Like he’s invincible.”
Apparently, John was sent to bed Monday night without dinner. When he refused to eat what he has described as an “icky” meal, it appears that his mother warned him against making that face, saying it might freeze like that. Obviously, this warning fell on deaf ears.
His frightened 12-year-old sister Jane says she will never forget the screams she heard this morning when John went into the bathroom and saw his face in his reflection upon getting out of bed to get ready for school.
Mr. and Mrs. Greene say that life will look a bit different for the family from now on. For one thing, they are preparing to put the house on the market. They have decided that now is as good a time as any to find a home with a basement apartment for their son to move into one day, as they will clearly never get rid of him now.
