Summer Bike Riding
It was the first day of the school year, and an elementary teacher wastrying to get to know her students."What did you do this summer?" the teacher asked Suzie.
"Me and my family went to the beach a lot," Suzie answered.
"That sounds like fun," said the teacher. "How about you, Emma? What did you do this summer?"
"Me and my family rode our bikes together."
"That sounds lovely," said the teacher. She continued with all herpupils until she got to Little Johnny in the corner of the room."What did you do this summer, Little Johnny?"
"Nothing," Little Johnny responded timidly.
"Did you do anything with your family?" the teacher asked, to try to draw Little Johnny out.
"Did you go to the beach?"
"Did you ride bikes?"
"No, never!" Little Johnny burst out. "We can never ride bikes together!"
"Why not?" said the shocked teacher.
"I don't know," explained Little Johnny, "but Daddy always says that when Mommy and sis' start "cycling" together, it's time to get the hell out of town."
