Somebody is into a tin of something he shouldn’t have got into. It’s a cookie tin, and he’s got a peanut butter cookie in his hand. His name is Harry, and his dog is called Lucky. They’re in the kitchen. Harry is adventuresome. Harry’s nick name is “Curly” – for obvious reasons. He needs a comb. Mom is downstairs getting lunch ready. What’s in that glass; and where did he get it? It could be pop, or tea. A neighbor may have given him a glass of pop, or maybe he poured it himself. Lucky seems to be asking, “Whatcha got for me?” These two are in trouble, and somebody is going to cry. Harry is also in trouble for tearing the knee out of his pants, probably sneaking up the stairs. Harry’s brothers and sisters are off to school. Harry will grow up to be a Doctor, because he knows what he wants. Mom comes in and shouts, “What are you doing?!” Boys get into cookie jars, and Moms often catch them in the act. Mom sends Harry to the washroom to get cleaned up.
