The Grocery List
Andy and Sandy were going to the grocery
store by themselves for the very first time. Mother had
given them a grocery list and a ten dollar bill.
1 orange juice
"This is an easy list!" said Andy.
"Nothing to it." said Sandy.
They got their coats and hats on and
headed for the door. There sat their dog Fred.
He was barking and holding his leash in his mouth.
"You can come along." they both said.
Sandy, Andy, and Fred arrived at the
grocery store. A sign on the door said, "No Bare Feet." and "No Dogs Allowed."
"Fred will have to wait outside while we
shop." said Sandy.
Sandy and Andy went inside while Fred
waited outside. Sandy reached into her pocket to get out the
list. It was gone!
"The list is gone." said Sandy.
"Where could it be?" "What did it say?"
Andy said, "Don't worry, I remember
everything on the list."
First, Sandy and Andy found milk.
Next, they found the orange juice. Andy remembered the list
also said butter. But neither one of them could remember
what else was on the list.
"It was 4 of something." said Sandy.
"4 of what?" said Andy.
"4 candy bars." said Sandy.
Sandy and Andy picked out 4 candy bars
and paid for all the groceries. They walked outside carrying
the bag of groceries and untied Fred. Fred had something in
his mouth. It was the grocery list and it was half
eaten. Andy quickly pulled it from his mouth and read.....4
"We are in trouble." he said.
"The list says 4 bananas, not 4 candy bars."
"We must tell mother the truth." they
Mother was very pleased Sandy and Andy
told the truth. She was so happy they all sat down and had a
glass of milk and ate the candy bars.
