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.
