It was the end of the school year and a kindergarten teacher was
receiving gifts from her pupils.
The florist's son handed her a gift. She shook it, held it overhead,
and said, "I bet I know what it is -- some flowers."
"That's right," the boy said, "but how did you know?"
"Oh, just a wild guess," she said.
The next pupil was the candy store owner's daughter. The teacher held
her gift overhead, shook it, and said, "I bet I can guess what it is --
a box of candy."
"That's right, but how did you know?" asked the girl.
"Oh, just a wild guess," said the teacher.
The next gift was from the son of the liquor store owner. The teacher held
it overhead, but it was leaking. She touched a drop of the leakage with her
finger and touched it to her tongue. "Is it wine?" she asked.
"No," the boy replied.
The teacher repeated the process, touching another drop of the leakage to
her tongue. "Is it champagne?" she asked.
"No," the boy replied again.
The teacher then said, "I give up, what is it?"
The boy replied, "A puppy!"
