Robin’s 2 cents

Little Johnny came downstairs bellowing lustily. His mother asked,”What’s the matter now?”

“Dad was hanging pictures, and just hit his thumb with a hammer,” said Johnny through tears. 

“That’s not so serious,” soothed his mother. “I know you’re upset, but a big boy like you shouldn’t cry at something like that. Why didn’t you just laugh?”

“I did!” sobbed Johnny.
