Make Me Laugh

Pete walked down the school hallway during recess.
He noticed his friend, Jeff with a big frown on his face.
"What's the matter?" Pete asked.
The young boy responded quickly,
"I'm waiting for someone to make me laugh."
Pete's eyes lit up.
He pulled out his little joke book and proceeded
to tell his friend the funniest joke he ever heard.
But Jeff's facial expression never changed.
Buddy came along and told his friend an amusing story.
But once again Jeff had the same frown on his face.
Cathy walked toward Jeff and started to giggle.
"What's so funny?" Jeff asked.
Cathy ignored him and continued to chuckle.
Pete and Buddy began to laugh too.
Jeff asked them again what is so funny?
The rest of the class joined in and laughed.
Jeff was persistent, he asked again what is so funny?
Cathy and the rest of the class paid no attention to him.
They laughed, and laughed and laughed.
Jeff's mood changed immediately.
He joined in with his own comical laugh.
The laughter continued until the school bell rang.
Jeff pulled Cathy aside.
"You never told me what was so funny?"
Cathy grinned back at him and answered,
"I made you laugh, didn't I?"

Kevin's the best!

Kevin pops in the living room 
and tries to get his sister's attention.
"Look at me!" said Kevin. "I am a real pirate."
"I am the best pirate in the world," proclaimed Kevin.
"You are no pirate," said his sister Betty.
"You have no sword and you have no ship."
Kevin lowers his head and walks away.
Kevin runs back in the living room and shouts,
"Look here, I am the best pilot."
"You can't be a pilot," said Betty.
"You have never flown and you are afraid of heights."
Once again, Kevin turns and walks away.
Kevin sprints back in the living room.
"I am the best doctor in the world."
"No way," said Betty. You faint at the sight of blood."
Once more, Kevin walks away disappointed.
Kevin comes back in the living room.
'Look at me now, I am a superhero."
Betty shakes her head and laughs.
"Nice costume but it's not Halloween yet."
"Okay, okay, you are right," Kevin said.
"I am not a pirate, nor a pilot, not a doctor or superhero."
"But," said Kevin. "I'm the best in one thing."
"What is that?" asked Betty.
"I have great imagination,"answered Kevin.
Betty looks at Kevin.
"You are right," Betty agreed.
"You have great imagination."
