Pete walked down the hallway at Liberty High School.
He noticed his friend Jeff leaning at his locker
with a frown on his face.
"What's the matter?" Pete asked him.
The young boy responded quickly,
"I am waiting for someone to make me laugh."
Pete's eyes lit up. "I'll make you laugh!"
"Why did the singer climb up a ladder?"
"To reach the high notes," Pete said.
Jeff's facial expression never changed.
Buddy came along and overheard their conversation.
"I'll make you laugh," Buddy proudly said.
"Why are all air conditioners so popular?
"Because they all fans," Buddy answered.
Jeff leaned back and continued to frown.
Wally was eager to try.
He stood next to Jeff and shared his best joke.
"How do you find a spider in the internet?"
"Check out his website," Wally said.
Jeff didn't think it was funny.
Cathy walked toward Jeff and started to laugh.
Jeff became curious.
"What's so funny?" Jeff asked her.
Cathy ignored him and continued to laugh.
Wally, Buddy and Pete began to laugh.
"What is so hilarious?" Jeff asked.
The rest of the class joined in and laughed.
Jeff was persistent.
"Why are you all laughing?"
The rest of the class paid no attention to Jeff.
Jeff's mood changed immediately.
He joined in with his own comical laugh.
The laughter continued until the school bell rang.
They all walked back to their classes with
a smile on their faces.
Jeff pulled Cathy aside.
"You never told me," Jeff said.
"What was so funny?"
Cathy grinned back at him and answered.
"I made you laugh, didn't I?"
