"The President Helps"
One Sunny day Frog went to Toad's house. Frog brought a chocolate a cake. The ate six pieces of cake. Frog said, “We have to stop eating this cake. as he ate another piece of cake.
Toad said, “We need will power!”
“You're right.” Frog said.
“I know.” said Toad, “We'll go to see the President.
So, They went and saw the President. They told Bill Clinton their problem. He said, “Put it in a box and wrap it up. Tie it up then put in on the highest shelf.”
“But President Clinton.” Frog said, “We can get a ladder and climb up to the highest shelf and untie it and unwrap it and take it out of the box and eat it.”
“That is true.” said Mr. President and he took a ladder and untied it and unwrapped it and took it out of the box and ate it!
“There, I solved your problem.” said President Clinton.
“I guess you did.” said Frog and Toad happily.
“Let's go to my house.” said Frog.
“You can. I'm going to my house to bake some cookies.” said Toad.
“Oh no! Here we go again!” said Frog. *
After reading this story out loud to Tara, I was laughing so hard. I mean why did I choose to write about Bill Clinton of all people??!! So I'm laughing to Tara about how funny it is, when she shares yet another piece of the story that I hadn't known... This was already a story... A Frog and Toad story.... Do you know them? The lovable little creatures that taught you how to read? Well I'd plagiarized their adventures. How sad. My college Professors would be ashamed. But I'm sure Bill Clinton would be overjoyed to know that he made a difference in the life of a child....
