“What for?” the boy asked.
“Hide! The cow’s outside,” the man said.
“I don’t care if it is, I’m not afraid of a cow,” the young boy replied.
Hal was home from college for the holidays. He said to his little sister, Sue, ”Would you like me to read you a narrative?”
”What is a narrative?” Sue asked.
”A narrative is a tale,” Hal told her.
That night when Sue went to bed, Hal asked, ”Should I extinguish the light, Sue?”
Sue asked, “What does extinguish mean?”
“Extinguish means to put out,” Hal explained.
The next day they were at dinner when their dog made a nuisance of himself.
”Hal,” Sue said, ”would you take the dog by the narrative and extinguish him?”
