Gifts for Teacher
It was the end of the school year, and a kindergarten
teacher was receiving gifts from her pupils. The florist's
son handed her a gift. She shook it, held it overhead,
and said, "I bet I know what it is. Some flowers."
"That's right." the boy said. "But how did you know?"
"Oh, just a wild guess," she said.
The next pupil was the candy shop owner's daughter. The
teacher held her gift overhead, shook it, and said, "I bet
I can guess what it is. A box of candy."
"That's right. But how did you know?" asked the girl.
"Oh, just a wild guess," said the teacher.
The next gift was from the son of the liquor store owner.
The teacher held the package overhead, but it was leaking.
She touched a drop of the leakage with her finger and
touched it to her tongue.
"Is it wine?" she asked.
"No," the boy replied, with some excitement.
The teacher repeated the process, taking a larger drop
of the leakage to her tongue.
"Is it champagne?" she asked.
"No," the boy replied, with more excitement.
The teacher took one more taste before declaring,
"I give up, what is it?"
With great glee, the boy replied, "It's a puppy!"
