Little Johnny was late for school.
The teacher asked him why, and Little Johnny explained it was because he met a man who had lost his wallet on the street.
“Ah,” nodded the teacher, “you were helping him find it!”
“Um, not really,” said Johnny, “but I had to keep standing on it until he would give up and go away.”
L.Johnny Walking To School.
A mother was worried about her kindergarten son, Little Johnny, walking to school.
He didn’t want his mother to walk with him.
She wanted to give him the feeling that he had some independence but yet knew that he was safe.
So she had an idea of how to handle it.
She asked a neighbor if she would follow him to school in the mornings, staying at a distance, so he probably wouldn’t notice her.
The neighbor said that since she would be up early with her toddler anyway, it would be a good way for her to exercise too, so she agreed.
The next school day, the neighbor and her little girl set out following behind Little Johnny as he walked to school with another neighbor girl he knew.
She did this for the whole week.
As the two walked and talked, kicking stones and twigs, Johnny’s little friend noticed the same lady following them as she seemed to do every day of the week.
Finally, she said to Little Johnny, ‘Have you noticed that lady following us to school all week? Do you know her?’
Little Johnny nonchalantly replied, “Yes, I know who she is.”
The little girl said, “Well, who is she?”
‘That’s just Shirley Goodnest,’ Little Johnny replied, ‘and her daughter Marcy ….’
‘Shirley Goodnest? Who is she and why is she following us?
‘Well,’ Little Johnny explained, ‘every night my Mum makes me say the 23rd Psalm with my prayers, ‘cuz she worries about me so much.
And in the Psalm, it says, ‘Shirley Goodnest (surely goodness) and Marcy (mercy) shall follow me all the days of my life.”
So I guess I’ll just have to get used to it.
LOL!! SO CUTE!!
Hope this joke will make you smile! Have a nice day!!
