A farm boy accidentally overturned his wagon-load of corn.
The farmer who lived nearby heard the noise. “Hey Wilmer!” the farmer yelled. “Forget your troubles. Come in and have a bite with us. Then I’ll help you get the wagon up.”
“That’s mighty nice of you,” Wilmer answered. “But I don’t think Pa would like me to.”
“Aw, come on!” the farmer insisted.
“Well okay,” the boy finally agreed, and added, “But Pa won’t like it.”
After a hearty dinner, Wilmer thanked his host. “I feel a lot better now, but I know Pa is going to be real upset.”
“Don’t be foolish!” the neighbor said with a smile. “By the way, where is your Pa?”
Wilmer replied, “Under the wagon.”
