A Valuable Cup

“George, I think I heard someone yell when you pulled the lever on the truck,” Maddox said.

“I didn’t hear anything!”

“Well there’s no noise now, so it was probably just something someone threw away.” Maddox said.

“We only have two more streets to cover  before we dump this load of garbage and go to the north side of town,” George remarked.

“Wait! George, I hear that noise again.”

“So do I!”

“Good grief!  It’s a kid,” George said as he opened the back of the truck.

“Son, are you alright?” Maddox asked.

“Yes, I just scrapped my knee a little,” he said.

“Why were you in the garbage ben?” George asked.

“To get this cup,” he said.

“George and Maddox said, “what on earth for?”

“Because my mother accidentally threw it away and it’s part of my school science project I’ve been working on for the last two weeks!” he said.

  1. Mothers do things like that but certainly not intentionally and she must have not seen him working on this part of his project. I would have thrown it out as well . Fortunately, it did not end up causing him to end up getting seriously hurt! Thank you for reading Nd commenting. 😃
