Kids do the darnedest things, don’t they? Getting into trouble, bringing frogs into the house, breaking the neighbor’s window with a baseball? Classic. History is full of kids doing goofy things.
But, sometimes, kids go above and beyond in the “darnedest things” department and truly deliver stories that are glorious. Today we give you one such story. It’s simple: a boy missed his school bus and wanted to stay home from school. But it’s also a work of such utter genius that few people could match it.
This is a story that contains perfect grammar, a beautiful pro/con list, some strong argumentation, and a few beautiful turns of phrase. If you’re ready to be driven into hysterics (the good kind) by a small child, read on: this kid is going to grow up to be a lawyer, we can tell already. His strongest defense: making you laugh until you can no longer punish him.
