THE BOY WAS OLD ENOUGH NOW TO GO TO CHURCH ON HIS OWN. EVERY SUNDAY
THE BOY'S MOTHER WOULD GIVE HIM TWO NICKELS: ONE FOR THE COLLECTION
PLATE AND THE OTHER NICKEL WAS TO BE USED TO BUY HIMSELF A BAG OF
JELLY BEANS. ONE SUNDAY THE BOY WAS TAKING HIS USUAL ROUTE BUT
HAPPENED TO BE IN A GOOD MOOD AND DECIDED TO SKIP ALL THE
WAY. WELL, IT HAPPENED THAT ONE NICKEL FELL OUT OF HIS HAND AND
IT ROLLED AND ROLLED AND HE CHASED AND CHASED BUT HE JUST COULDN'T
REACH IT AND IT FELL INTO THE SEWER. THE BOY TURNED HIS HEAD UPWARD
TOWARDS HEAVEN AND SAID "WELL, GOD, THERE GOES YOUR NICKEL."
