Wolfe’s Woofer: In The Corner
Sunday, May 11th, 2014
“Grandpa, it’s me, Davin.”
“I figured it was you,” I said. “You’re the only grandson I have. What’s up?”
“Mom said you are supposed to pick me. I borrowed the phone to tell you I’m going to be one hour late getting out of class.”
“What did you do this time?” I asked.
Davin said, “On Monday the teacher asked me what my favorite animal was and I told her it was fried chicken. She said I wasn’t funny but everybody else laughed.”
Of course I laughed, too. I couldn’t help it.
“See, even you think it’s funny,” Davin said.
“Well, Davin,” I said. “Your teacher is probably one of those people who love animals very much.”
“I love animals very much, too,” he said. “Especially chicken, pork and beef.”
I laughed again.
“Anyway, the teacher sent me to the principal’s office. When I told him what happened he laughed and said don’t do it again. Teacher made me stand in the corner after class.”
“What happened yesterday?” I asked.
“Tuesday the teacher asked me what my favorite live animal is. I told her my favorite live animal is chicken. She asked me why and I said it’s because you can make it into fried chicken. So then I had to go back to the principal’s office.”
“Did he punish you?”
“No. He laughed and told me not to do it again. Teacher still made me stand in the corner.”
I laughed again, too.
“Grandpa, Mom always says I should tell the truth but I just get in trouble with my teacher when I do. Today she asked me to tell her which famous person I like the best. I told her it was Colonel Sanders.”
When I finished laughing Davin said, “Grandpa, I bet you can’t guess where I am right now.”
