- "The Little Boy and the Old Man"Said the little boy, "Sometimes I drop my spoon."
Said the old man, "I do that too."
The little boy whispered, "I wet my pants."
"I do that too," laughed the little old man.
Said the little boy, "I often cry."
The old man nodded, "So do I."
"But worst of all," said the boy, "it seems
Grown-ups don't pay attention to me."
And he felt the warmth of a wrinkled old hand.
"I know what you mean," said the little old man.
- "How Many, How Much"How many slams in an old screen door?Depends how loud you shut it.How many slices in a bread?Depends how thin you cut it.How much good inside a day?Depends how good you live 'em.How much love inside a friend?Depends how much you give 'em.
