A farm boy accidentally overturned his wagon load of corn. The farmer who lived nearby heard the noise and rushed right over.
“Hey Willis!!” the farmer yelled. “Forget it for now. It’s dinnertime. Come eat with us, and then we’ll come back and I will help you turn the wagon back up.”
“That’s mighty nice of you, ” Willis answered, “but I don’t think Pa would like me to.”
“Aw, come on,” the farmer insisted, “you have to eat! We’ll get back to the wagon soon.”
“Well okay,” the boy finally agreed, and added, “But Pa won’t like it.”
After a hearty dinner, Willis thanked his host. “I feel a lot better now, but I know Pa is going to be real upset.”
“Don’t be foolish.” the neighbor said with a smile. “By the way, where is your Pa?”
“Under the wagon.”.
