Vegetarian Roommate

“There’s a monster under my bed!” whimpered Sophie.

“I know,” said Mom. “I put it there. It likes dark places.”

“Won’t it come out at night and eat me!?”

“No, it’s a vegetarian.”

Sophie put fresh heads of lettuce under her bed every day for the rest of her life.

The Feud Between Ted and the Wind

The spiteful wind was fierce and sharp. Ted tried to escape, but it chased him, cackling, and sheared the hair right off his head.

He snuck home, frantic with embarrassment. Naturally Melanie was the first person to stop by.

“You’re bald!” she exclaimed. “I love it.”

“Darn,” cursed the wind.
