You'll shoot your eye out kid!
Mr. M has been asking for a BB gun for quite some time now. We finally gave Mr. M permission but told him he'd have to earn the money and pay for it himself.
Mr. M has been working hard for over a month now and thought he had enough money. Off he and I went to the local 'Marts' to get a BB gun! It was a little more than Mr. M anticipated. Plus, he needed BB's to go in the gun. I bought the gun and BB's and told Mr. M he could have them when he'd finished paying for them.
The gun has been up in my room. Mr. M has been bringing his friends by to see it. He's been continuing to work hard trying to quickly earn the rest of the money.
Yesterday, as Mr. M was busy at home picking cherries with the rest of The Native's, I found out that his friends were doing a lemonade stand. I about died laughing when I found out why.
They were busy selling kool-aid and water and giving the earnings to Mr. M so he could get his BB gun faster!
I told Mr. M (who my mom calls Tom Sawyer): You sure have some really nice friends!
Tom Sawyer: I know! I just love them to death!
