Johnny On The Spot 1

Awh no, not again. Mr Selak, and he’s seen me.

I could’ve gone down the back street, but no, here I am. I know exactly what he’s going to say. He’ll say “Hey you boy, you’ll do. Ho ho ho, a right regular little Johhny on the spot. Shimmy up that mast and untangle the ropes, we’re flying half mast again.”

You listen; “Hey you boy, you’ll do. Ho ho ho, a right regular little Johhny on the spot. Shimmy up that mast and untangle the ropes, we’re flying half mast again.”

Yep, happens about every third day, you think I’d be smart enough to get to school another way eh.

Anyway, I shimmy up and untangle the ropes again.

Thanks boy, get along now, I’ll see you in class.

I suppose it’s not all bad, I mean it’s good practice for when I go raiding his apples this afternoon. I’ll be a right regular little Johhny on the spot then eh. Nice big juicy apples, ho ho ho yourself Mr Selak.
