Ultimately, he gets away with it explaining his wet hair as a water pump accident. However, when his brother Sid points out the black thread on his shirt which Tom has used to sew up his shirt to try to get away with his playing hookey, Aunt Polly decides to punish him by making him work on whitewashing the next day.
