Thanksgiving Day Mix-Up

Thanksgiving was Teddy's favorite day of the whole year. He loved to wake up early and head downstairs to help his dad start cooking the yummiest thing in the whole world – a double-decker ooey gooey apple pie. After tossing and turning for hours, he finally rolled out of bed and went to the kitchen to help his dad start peeling the apples. He found his parents in the middle of the kitchen, laughing and saying to each other, "But I thought you bought the apples for the apple pie." Teddy soon realized that no one had remembered to buy the ingredients for the pie, and since all of the stores would be closed that day...

Teddy´s heart suddenly started beating fast. Teddy said,"Mr. cat..." "Please call me Mr. Poof," interrupted the poofy cat. "Mr. Poof, could I please have those apples?" said Teddy.

Lastly, I would like a spa treatment like a bath, my nails done, and any thing else you can think of. Then the apples will be yours."

Age 11

Teddy raced over to Mr. Poof and took his thorn out as carefully as he could. He was just about to race out the door when his mom said "Teddy I'm sorry for eavesdropping, but are you out of your mind?" "You know as well as I do that the rottwieler down the street will eat you in one gulp." "Well then what should I do?" asked Teddy. Teddy looked at the wide grin on his moms face, this always meant she had a plan. A really good one to get those apples

Teddy asked his mom "what is the plan to get the apples?" His mom said "well we will put cucumbers on Mr. Poof's face when we do the spa treatment. Then we will have a chance to get the apples because his eyes will be closed. Teddy told his mom "this is a great plan!" So Teddy invited Mr. Poof inside and Teddy said "I would like to started with your spa treatment" so they got started. While Mr. Poof's eyes were closed he took that apples and ran to make his apple pie!
