Zonker's Candy Caper

By:Andrew Troy Keller

As far back as I could remember,each and every kid would do anything just to get their hands on the most terrific chocolate bar on the face of the planet Earth--a king-size Hershey's bar.

As a matter of fact,there was this one kid named Zonker,who once had this great scheme to get his hands on one of those bars that would've placed him in the archives of criminal legends everywhere.It had started on a Friday,when the rest of us were outside playing a game of basketball,while Zonker was sitting outside the local Dairy Mart and waited for the right moment to walk casually into the store,sneak one of those bars into his pocket and walk casually back out without the manager getting wise.

Now,I know what you're thinking and I don't blame you one single bit.

But you've got to admit,Zonker's plan had gone off as smooth as silk and he was almost home free.

There was only one thing wrong with his plan of escape.

Just as he was about to step out of the store and zoom his way back to his house,he had suddenly bumped into his mom and dad,who had arrived at the store to get his poor sickly little brother a candy bar.

And when the manager had asked Zonker's parents why they were so sad and they had told him such a gutt wrenching story,he admitted to the crime and said he was sorry.

After that,his parents told Zonker that they were so proud of him for telling the truth--and grounded him for an entire year.
