He's eating some gookey stuff or something. Looks like jelly. The dog is getting mad, he aint gettin any. The boy tore his pants, his knee is out. Joeys got a glass of soda by his side on the kitchen floor. It looks like chocolate milk. I think it looks more like coca cola. it could be both of them. Whatever it is, it's messy, thats for sure! Cuz he's getting it all over! He's sucking hard on his thumb. The dog is waiting to be called so he can jump in. Champ is waiting to get some of that goody stuff. He looks like he's ready to jump on Joey. It's the fall of 1935 in Germantown Wisconsin. Joey just got home from school. mother made some cookies, she made it that morning. He wasn't supposed to touch it. Joey came home from school to have lunch or dinner. His parents aren't home yet,so he thought he could steal some cookies before they came home. It still smells like peanut butter cookies. The smell is still lingering, it was too tempting to pass up. He's thinking he's gonna have a cookie. He knows he's not supposed to be in it. It was during the depression and they didn't have much money.Joeys' mama got a job as a maid so they could have something good once in a while. He took the whole bowl of cookies and sat right down on the floor and started eating a cookie. Champ is waiting on his share,he is waiting for the boy to give him some. His tongue is hanging out. Joey took a bite of a cookie and it tasted gooo-od! He's steady watching the door because he knows it's time for his mother to come home. Joey decided to eat one more cookie. The two of them ended up eating the whole jar of cookies! They were sooo full, they fell asleep, both of them, right on the floor.
