Granny said I had to go to school.
I was getting a biscuit out of the jar, when Granny said "Only one Wilbur.' Well I took one. Then she said "did you have one before".
Well I had to say yes because I was taught never to tell lies.
That's when the TROUBLE started.
"Wilbur if you had one biscuit before and another one now that is NOT one biscuit. it is 2....
Well I thought it was one then and one now, and perhaps one later on. Perhaps one just before bed would be good as well.
"Wilbur you will have to go to school to learn how to add up.
The teacher looked fairly old he had crooked glasses on. There were 2 other bears in class. One was a sooky and would not put her pillow down. It was a wonder she didn't suck her thumb.
Then there was the pink girl. Well I learnt a little about her as well.
Some things Granny did teach me, and that was to be polite. I don't know who taught these two girls!!!!
"I wan't the sharpener and the rubber nest to me"....." You can't have it it's mine... NO the pink pencil matches my pillow. I want the pink pencil."
NO please or thank you.
Bossy britches was on the table telling Sooky she would pinch her. Then there was a yell!!! she let out a scream. It woke the teacher up (I thought he must have been asleep.) He told those girls to get off the desk right away and to give the pencils back. They could only have one. (He seemed very cross.)
I asked if I could learn from the book about Potions and Solutions, it looks far more interesting than sums. I was told NO.... by Mr. Grumpy. He said I had to keep practicing my sums so I didn't take too many biscuits.
I promise Granny I will try harder to count the biscuits next time.
At least I did have manners.
ONE piece of toast, peanut butter and honey with ONE glass of milk tonight.
I think I will dream of counting cookies until I go to sleep.
See you all next week.
To all my lovely readers. We love hearing from you. Thank You.
My thought for the day.
