Under the wagon
A farm boy accidentally overturned his wagonload of corn.
The farmer who lived nearby heard the noise and yelled over
to the boy, “Hey Willis, forget your troubles. Come in and
visit with us. I’ll help you get the wagon up later.”
“That’s mighty nice of you,” Willis answered, “but I don’t
think Pa would like me to.”
“Aw come on boy,” the farmer insisted.
“Well okay,” the boy finally agreed, and added, “but Pa
won’t like it.”
After a hearty dinner, Willis thanked his host. “I feel a
lot better now, but I know Pa is going to be real upset.”
“Don’t be foolish!” the neighbor said with a smile. “By the
way, where is he?”
“Under the wagon.”
