Straight And Stiff

Young Timmy was in the garden pulling earthworms from the ground. Grandpa watched over Timmy playing in the sun and said “Timmy I bet you can’t put the worms back in their holes!” A defiant Timmy replied “I sure can grandpa”. And so young Timmy tried to push the worms back into their holes in the ground. But he found it impossible to do so as the worms were wriggling and were never straight enough for him to do so. After an hour of this Grandpa laughed and said as he went inside “If you do manage to push them in I will give you $10.”

Timmy was bright and he though and though and thought of a way to push the earthworms back into their holes. That evening he passed by his elder sisters room and thought of an idea! The next morning out in the garden he showed Grandpa that he was able to push the worms back into their holes. Grandpa was surprised and asked him “Timmy how do u manage to do that?” “Easy grandpa, I used my sister’s hair straightening spray on the worms. They become stiff and straight and therefore easy to push back into their holes!”

Grandpa was surprised and gave Timmy a $10 note. The next day grandpa came over, patted Timmy on the head and gave him another $10 note. Timmy said “Grandpa you already gave me $10 for the bet you lost!”. Grandpa smiled and said “I know son. This $10 is from your grandma!”

Got it?
