Saturday Smile

The fourth-grade teacher had to leave the room for a
few minutes. When she returned, she found the children
in perfect order. Everybody was sitting absolutely quiet.

She was shocked and stunned and said, "I've never seen
anything like it before. This is wonderful. But, please
tell me, what came over all of you?
Why are you so well behaved and quiet?"

Finally, after much urging, Herman spoke up and
said, "Well, one time you said that if you ever came
back and found us quiet, you would drop dead."
