Johnny and Mark were playing catch in the yard. Mark had signed up for little league and was hoping to be the team pitcher. When Johnny missed the ball they cringed, hoping it would not go into the neighbor’s yard.
Sure enough Mr. Paulson swung open his front door and hollered at the two boys, “You better not be coming onto my lawn! Don’t want no kids ruining my lawn!”
Mr. Paulson had turned into quite a cur the last few years. The boys both replied as Johnny stopped the ball just shy of the yard, “We won’t Mr. Paulson.”
