Little Johnnie and Susie are only 10 years old, but they just know that they are in love.
One day they decided that they want to get married,
So Johnnie decided to approach Susie’s father to ask him for her hand.
Johnnie bravely walked up to him and said,
“Mr. Smith, me and Susie are in love and I want to ask you for her hand in marriage”.
Thinking that this was the cutest thing ever, Mr Smith replied,
“Well Johnnie, you are only 10. Where will you two live”?
Without even taking a moment to think about it, Johnnie replied,
“In Susie’s room, of course. It’s bigger than mine and we can both fit our stuff in there nicely”.
Still thinking this is just adorable, Mr Smith said with a huge grin,
“Okay then how will you live? You’re not old enough to get a job. You’ll need to support Susie”.
Again, Johnnie instantly replied,
“Our allowance – Susie makes 5 bucks a week and I make 10 bucks a week. That’s about 60 bucks a month, and that should do us just fine”.
By this time Mr Smith is a little shocked that Johnnie had put so much thought into his proposal.
So, Mr Smith thought for a moment, as he tried to come up with something that Johnnie wouldn’t know how to answer.
After another moment, Mr Smith said,
“Well Johnnie, it seems like you have got everything all figured out. I just have one more question for you. What will you do if the two of you should have little ones of your own”?
Johnnie just shrugged his shoulders and said,
“Well, gosh, Mr Smith, I’ve been worried about that, but we’ve been lucky so far…”
