Use the Grown-Up Word

    The kindergartners were now in the first grade.  Their teacher wanted them to be more grown-up since they were no longer in kindergarten.  She told them to use grown-up words instead of baby words.  She then asked them to tell her what they did during the summer.

    The first little one said he went to see his Nana.  The teacher said, “No, no -- you went to see your Grandmother.  Use the grown-up word.”

    The next little one said she went for a trip on a choo-choo.  The teacher again said, “No, no -- you went on a trip on a train.  That’s the grown-up word.”

    Then the teacher asked the Little Johnny what he did during the summer.  He proudly stated that he read a book.  The teacher asked what book he had read.  And Little Johnny puffed out his chest and in a very adult way replied, “Winnie the Sh**!”
