Billy's Colorful Shirt
Billy sat down for breakfast. He wore a brand new white t-shirt. He took a bite of his peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and a dab of jelly landed on his shirt. Billy noticed he had two colors on his shirt, white and purple. Billy drank his orange juice and he accidentally spilled some on his shirt. He spotted three colors on his shirt, white, purple and orange. Billy ran outside and wrestled with his dog on the grass. When Billy brushed himself off, he found four colors on his shirt, white, purple, orange and green. Billy took a stroll around the neighborhood when he ran into his friend, George. George offered Billy a chocolate bar. Billy accepted the candy bar and proceeded to eat the whole candy. The chocolate began to melt on Billy's hands. Billy immediately wiped his hands on his shirt. He observed he had five colors on his shirt, white, purple, orange, green and brown. Billy pulled out his ink pen from his pocket. A drop of blue ink landed on his shirt. Billy took a glance at his shirt and saw six colors on his shirt, white, purple, orange, green, brown and blue.
Billy marched back to his yard and noticed a dog bone partially buried in his garden. He stuck his hand in the soil and pulled out the bone. He noticed his hands were full of dirt, so he wiped his hands on his shirt. Billy has seven colors on his shirt, white, purple, orange, green, brown, blue and black. Billy walked into his kitchen for some snack. He had a craving for ice cream. His favorite flavor is strawberry. He licked his ice cream and a drop of strawberry splashed on his shirt. Billy discovered he had eight colors on his shirt, white, purple, orange, green, brown, blue, black and red. Billy's mom walked into the kitchen and her jaw dropped.
"What happened to your shirt?" his mom asked him. Billy told his mom how the jelly, juice, grass, chocolate, ink, soil and ice cream landed on his shirt. Mom shook her head in disbelief. Billy put on a new shirt, a colorful t-shirt that matches his personality. Mom looked into her son's innocent eyes. "Be careful, son," she said. Billy jumped up and down in sheer delight. He couldn't wait for his next adventure.
