The Cricket That Could

Once there was a cricket that fell down a hole in our sink

Holy cow we said, and started to think

It wasn’t just a sink down there, it wasn’t just a hole

That side was the one with the garbage disposal

Drama. Everyone was instructed not to use that side and a wooden spoon was left inserted in the hole in the hopes the little guy would figure out how to crawl back out, not able to fathom the idea of his losing his little life in such a horrid way.

It worked! Once we waited long enough and left it alone, he crawled up and escaped on his own.

The moral of this story?


Don’t jump in sinks.

Goodnight my friends!!
