Short Story: The Pledge of Allegiance

My son decided to say the supper time pray yesterday because his sister was stalling so he figured he would bail her out.

He cleared his 7 year old throat and with his head bowed and his hands clasped he said...

"I pledge allegiance to the flag of the nine states of America..."

I stopped him and said, I think you mean the United States of America.

And he said "No I mean nine.  That's what my teacher says everyday."

Still laughing.

You should ask him if she specified which nine! Haha! I love kids' selective hearing!
