Once there was a little boy Boroja who lived in the continental climate country . They had to use an outhouse, and little Boroja hated it because it was hot in the summer and cold in the winter and stank all the time.The outhouse was sitting on the bank of a creek and Boroja determined that one day he would push that outhouse into the creek. One day after a spring rain, the creek was swollen so the boy decided today was the day to push the outhouse into the creek. So he got a large stick and started pushing. In the end,the outhouse toppled into the creek and floated away. That night Boroja’s father told him they were going to the woodshed after supper.Knowing that meant a spanking, the little boy asked why.
His father answered, “Someone pushed the outhouse into the creek today.It was you, wasn’t it son?”
Boroja answered yes. Then he thought a second and said, “Dad, I read in a book today that George Washington chopped down a cherry tree and didn’t get into trouble because he told the truth.”
Boroja’s father replied, “Well, son, George Washington’s father wasn’t on the tree.”
