Yesterday (Mother’s Day) a sweet young girl decided to do something special
for her mother. So early in the morning she snuck into the bedroom and
brought Mom a cup of tea.
“Why, you’re such a sweetheart,” the mother said as she drank the tea. “I
didn’t know you even knew how to make tea.”
“Oh, yes,” the little girl replied. “I learned by watching you. I put the
tea leaves in the pan and then I put in the water, and boiled it, and then I
strained it into a cup. But I couldn’t find a strainer, so I used the
“You what?” the mother gasped.
But the little girl added, “Oh, don’t worry, Mom. I didn’t use the new
flyswatter. I used the old one.”
