MOTHER MAY I GO OUTSIDE? NO MY CHILD; I'M AFRAID YOU MIGHT STAY.
NO I WON'T, YES YOU WILL. LOOK UP IN THE SKY
AND TELL ME WHAT TIME IT IS.

Submitter comment: AFTER THE PLAYER TELLS THE LEADER WHAT TIME IT IS, THEN THE PLAYER
CAN GO OUTSIDE AND PLAY FOR A SHORT TIME. THEN THE MOTHER WILL CALL
OUT FOR THE PLAYERS (HER CHILDREN). ALMOST ALWAYS THEY WILL NOT
COME, BECAUSE THEY WANT MOTHER TO CHASE THEM, AND SHE DOES.
