Baldwin Center: Day 2

[After explaining how we'll be writing and performing a play]
Kid #1: "Are we getting paid for this?"
Kid #2: "Will you give us 99 million dollars?"

Story the 4th-6th graders' play is inspired by:

The Old Man Who Didn’t Give the Old Man Some Soup [told by Isaiah]

"There’s two girls that act like they were two old men. There’s a table, and they start banging on it saying 'give me some soup.' And the old man that works there says, 'I’m not giving you any soup.'

The waitress just walks away and the old man never gets any soup."


  1. I feel like Samuel Beckett would approve.

  2. Hahaha...Josh, I was just going to say pretty much EXACTLY the same thing.
