“Mom and Dad,” he called, just like the Waltons, after we’d all settled in for the night.

“Yes, Son, what is it?” my husband answered.

“ Mrs. Purser smelled something in our classroom today.” Mrs Purser, being the long-suffering teacher of his second grade class.

“What was it?”

“Well, she had to go looking for it."

“Where did she look?”

“Well, first, she walked around the radiator and looked all around it. Then she had everybody take their lunch out of the desk and put it on top.”

“Was somebody’s lunch spoiled?’

“Nope. She said they were all fine.”

“What did she do next?”

“She had us all take our shoes off.”

“Was it somebody’s shoes?”

“She said that they all smelled stinky like little boys’ feet, but that wasn’t the real bad smell she was looking for.”

“Well, what did she do after that?”

“She walked up and down every aisle.”

“Did she find anything?”

“Not at first.”

“When did she find something?”

“When she got to Mary Jane.”

“Was it Mary Jane?”

“No, Mary Jane told her what it was.”
“What did she say?”

“She said, ‘Mrs, Purser, Junior in the seat behind me is sitting in it.”

“Goodnight, Dennis,” both stifling giggles.

…And that’s my favorite bedtime story.

I loved the suspense by the child. Great writing and a fun story.

Omigoodness, that's too funny! Leave it to you to come up with something as cute as this. Nothing on earth is as sweet as a little kid explaining something. What a darling entry!!

Verna, you speedy writer! I had to come return the favor for your comments on three of my stories and lo and behold, I find your Bedtime Story already on file. I love the dialog between parents and child. I can see why it is your favorite. Thank you, too, for your kindness in reading and commenting on my stories. You are so appreciated!

Now that was just too much like my grandson. Good one, Verna.

Verna, that is too funny I don't think I would have been able to fall asleep too quickly after that one! God's blessings to you . . . Debby
