The Doorbell

doorbellA man is walking down the street one day when he notices a very small boy trying to press a doorbell on a house across the street. However, the boy is very small and the doorbell is too high for him to reach.

After watching the boy’s efforts for some time, the man moves closer to the boy’s position. He steps smartly across the street, walks up behind the little fellow and, placing his hand kindly on the child’s shoulder, leans over and gives the doorbell a solid ring.

Crouching down to the child’s level, the man smiles benevolently and asks, “And now what, my little man?”

The boy replies, “Now we run!”

    I'd have a problem doing that. I think that the little boy would stand out on the sidewalk and laugh at me. That little whipper snapper.

    Have a great Tuesday Sandee & Zane. See ya.

    Sometimes we forget the games we played as kids. It just takes a kid to remind us of how easy it is to have a little mischievous fun. No harm, no foul. πŸ˜€

    Another little child scams an adult. I know this is just a joke and not real, and years ago I would've helped, but nowadays I hesitate to help a child unless it's a dire situation in which case I would jump into the fray. Everything is upside down now; not anything like it was when I was kid.
