Willis the farm boy accidentally overturned his wagon load of wheat on the road, creating one heck of a mess.
The farmer that lived nearby, saw what had happened and came to investigate.
“Hey, Willis,” he called out, “forget your troubles for a while and come and have dinner with us. Then I’ll help you turn the wagon upright again.”
“That’s very nice of you,” Willis answered, “but I don’t think my Dad would like me to.”
“Aw, come on, son!” the farmer insisted.
“Well, OK,” the boy finally agreed, “but I know my Dad won’t like it.”
After a hearty dinner, Willis thanked the host. “I feel a lot better now, but I know my Dad is going to be real upset.”
“Don’t be silly!” said the neighbor. “By the way, where is he?”
“He’s under the wagon,” replied Willis.
