LITTLE LEROY (FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY)

LITTLE LEROY

Subject: LITTLE LEROY

 

Little Leroy came into the kitchen where his mother was

making dinner.

 

 His birthday was coming up and he thought this was a

good time to tell  his mother what he wanted. "Mom, I want a bike for my

birthday."

 

 Little Leroy was a bit of a troublemaker. He had gotten

into trouble at school and at home. Leroy 's mother asked him if he

thought he deserved to get a bike for his birthday. Little Leroy , of

course, thought he did.

 

 Leroy 's mother, being a Christian woman, wanted him to

reflect on his behavior over the last year, and write a letter to God

and tell him why he deserved a bike for his birthday.

 

 Little Leroy stomped up the steps to his room and sat

down to write God a letter.

 

 LETTER 1:

 Dear God:

 I have been a very good boy this year and I would like a

bike for my  birthday. I want a red one.

 

 Your friend,

 Leroy

 

 Leroy knew this wasn't true. He had not been a very good

boy this year, so he tore up the letter and started over.

 

 LETTER 2:

 Dear God:

 This is your friend Leroy . I have been a pretty good

boy this year, and I would like a red bike for my birthday.

 

 Thank you,

 Leroy

 

 Leroy knew this wasn't true either. He tore up the

letter and started again.

 

 LETTER 3:

 Dear God:

 I know I haven't been a good boy this year. I am very

sorry. I will be a good boy if you just send me a red bike for my

birthday.

 

 Thank you,

 Leroy

 

 Leroy knew, even if it was true, this letter was not

going to get him a bike. By now, Leroy was very upset.

 

 He went downstairs and told his mother he wanted to go

to church. Leroy 's mother thought her plan had worked because

Leroy looked very sad. Just be home in time for dinner," his mother said.

 

 Leroy walked down the street to the church and up to the

altar. He looked around to see if anyone was there. He picked

up a statue of the Virgin Mary, slipped it under his shirt and ran out

of the church, down the street, into his house, and up to his room. He

shut the door to his room and sat, down with a piece of paper and a pen,

and wrote his letter to God.

 

 LETTER 4:

  I GOT YOUR MAMA.

  IF YOU WANT TO SEE HER AGAIN, SEND THE BIKE.

  Signed,

 YOU KNOW WHO
