Prepared to Risk It

Prepared to Risk It.

A small boy at the Christmas party had been eating steadily for an alarming length of time. When he asked for another helping, his mother spoke to him earnestly.

“Willie,” she said, “I'm quite serious. If you take another helping of turkey, you'll burst.”

Willie listened, alarm spreading over his features. He hesitated, and gazed at the turkey. Finally he sat erect, a study of heroic resolution.

“All right, then,” said he, “give me another helping and stand clear.”
