A Lesson in Respectability


One day, as we were walking along the street,
Minding our own bus-
iness, and trying
to avoid the
cracks in the
pave-
ment.            (Whew!)

Someone
Suddenly jumped out from around the corner and said in a superior tone
"What a really stuuupid, babyish thing to do!"
And somehow, we never really felt
Like playing that game again.

(Except when we were absolutely sure
No-one was look-
ing.)
