If You Give a Mom a New Pair of Sneakers

If you give a mom a new pair of sneakers for Christmas,
she will wait until the weather clears before wearing them.

If she waits until the weather clears before wearing them,
someone will kick the brand new soccer ball over the fence 10 minutes into lunch.

If someone kicks the brand new soccer ball over the fence 10 minutes into lunch,
the mom will have to climb the fence separating the school from the creek.

If the mom climbs the fence separating the school from the creek,
she will have to climb at the shortest point of the fence.

If she climbs at the shortest point of the fence,
she will have to cross the creek in three different places to retrieve the ball.

If she crosses the creek in three different places to retrieve the ball,
she will get her brand new pair of sneakers muddy and wet.

If she gets her brand new pair of sneakers muddy and wet,
she will need a new pair of sneakers next Christmas.
