Alex is sitting at the table concentrating on a piece of paper he is reading, when Maggy enters the room. She’s so excited about a friend”s surprise birthday party she starts talking to Alex. In her excitement she is flinging her arms around and knocks over a glass of water standing on the table. The whole floor turns into a wet mess and Maggy gets the mop straight away to clean it up. Then just to show her, what he thinks about such carelessness, Alex takes the poor girl over his knee.
