Everything We Need

A young teacher was trying to teach her six-year-old charges about sharing.

In the midst of doing so, she said that no one had everything that they wanted.

At this point, a young arm energetically shot up at the back of the class.

She tried to ignore him, but little Johnny started shouting, “Oh miss, oh miss!” with his arm pumping.

“Yes, Johnny, what is it?”she asked.

Little Johnny stood up and proclaimed to the class, “At our house, we have everything.”

“Don’t be silly,” the teacher replied, “Not even the richest man has everything.”

“We do,” he answered, “My daddy said so the other day.”

“Now, why would your father say such a thing?” she asked.

“Well, my fifteen-year-old sister came home with her skinhead boyfriend and told poppa she was pregnant. That’s when my dad said ‘God, that’s all we needed.'”
