Little Sally’s Tower


“Bobby, give it back!”

“I didn’t take it, you’re being mean.” Bobby starts to cry.

“Sally, stop it now! What are you going on about?”

Bobby took my tower, it was right here.”

“Did not.”

“Did too. Grandma gave it to me, it’s precious.”

“Did you look under the fridge, Sally, maybe it fell off.”

“Maybe the dog ate it.”

“Shut up, Bobby!”

Little Sally gets down on hands and knees and looks under the fridge.

“Gimme a flashlight, Bobby.”

“Get one yourself.”

“Mother!” Little Sally pokes around under the refrigerator with a finger.  “Found it!”


“Shut up, Bobby.”
