HUMOROUS STORY OF THE WEEK
You Can’t Spell DON’T Without DO
by Jamie Sadler
Jamie didn’t always listen to his parents’ advice. If you were an adventurous child you might recall a similar time. Do you remember a time when, despite your parents’ best efforts, you chose to ignore and later paid the price?
In this humorous story, Jamie meets Big trouble when he deliberately ignored his parents’ stern warning, Do NOT climb on the air raid shelter. Can you guess exactly what he did next? You guessed it, he hears their words but purposely ignores them. It was almost like his parent’s warning was an open invitation, a dare to climb atop that old brick structure and jump to the ground. Jamie answered the invitation and paid the price because no oe told him to be careful not to land on his head.
He and his siblings kept the results of his misadventure a secret for quite some time, but now that their secret is out, they all can laugh at this event together. Yes, kids will be kids, but Jamie, now a responsible adult, still has a bit of mischief in his eye!
Jamie’s story won an award in the Tales2Inspire humor category and now is published in the Crystal Collection’s first chapter: Kids Will Be Kids, Until They Grow Up and Have Kids of Their Own.
