One day little Tommy was walking with an older neighborhood kid named Billy Bob and he got curious.
“Billy Bob,” Tommy asked, “How come everyone calls you by your first name and your middle name instead of just Billy?”
“Well,” Billy Bob answered, “When I was little like you, I used to get in trouble a lot, and when I did my mom always called me by both names. I guess after a while, it just stuck.”
“Oh no!” Tommy cried. “I’d better straighten up then!”
“Why’s that?” Billy Bob asked.
“I don’t want to end up being called ‘you naughty kid’ for the rest of my life!”
One day a child at my four-year-old's preschool class told her classmates that she needed a 'damp towel.'
Some of the other kids thought she said a naughty word and told on her.
The teacher stepped in to explain, "If your mommy asked you to bring her a damp towel, what does she want?"
A little girl blurted out, "She means she wants that towel right now!"
