(Written by M.A., my niece, when she was 7 years old.)
“Somebody stole my pants! Who was it?” Mad Martin asked. “Sneaky Susan, did you steal my pants?”
“No, I did not.” Sneaky Sour Susan answered.
“Maybe Bad Ben took it.” Sneaky Sour Susan replied.
“Bye.” Said Mad Martin.
“Bad Ben, did you steal my pants?”
“No. Maybe Grumpy George took it.” Said Bad Ben.
So, Mad Martin went to Grumpy George.
“Did you steal my pants, Grumpy George?” He asked.
“No, I did not steal your pants.” He also answered.
Everyone decided to look for Mad Martin’s pants. Sneaky Sour Susan told Mad Martin to check the washing machine. Everyone ran to the washing machine and they all exclaimed, “Mad Martin, it’s there!” They all looked at him. “MAD MARTIN!”
Lesson: Never blame anyone for something. Always check your washing machine. Maybe what you’re looking for is just right there.
