It's not wine!
It was the second grade teacher's birthday. So every child in the class was giving her a special gift.
Anna's mother owned a flower shop, so Anna gave the teacher some beautiful flowers.
Robert's parents owned a candy shop. Robert gave the teacher a wonderful box of assorted candies.
Then it was little Johnny's turn. Johnny's dad owned a liquor store! So Johnny brought a big box for his teacher. When little Johnny handed the box to his teacher, she noticed that the bottom of the box was wet. So she put her finger on it and tasted.
"Is it wine?" the teacher asked.
"No, it's not wine!" Johnny replied.
She tasted it again. "Hmmmmmm. Is it some sort of liquor?"
"Nope, it's not liquor!" said Johnny.
She tasted it again and was puzzled. "Well, Johnny, I give up. What is it?"
Johnny was excited. "It's a puppy!" he said.
