I toles them there was NO WAY JOSE that I would miss my date so we put our heads together and thought up a plan. This is what I did.
I found my cellphone and called Liberty up to see if she would like to come over and have our date through my extended lunch hour. At first hers told me I was a cheapskate but I broke down and whimpered a bit (the boys toles me to do that) and I told her the truf that the ogre I work for says Isa haf to work late. I pleaded wif her to bring me some lunch, and we would have a magical date. So hers says YES!!
Hers even packed it in hers snoopy lunch box. I asked her where she got her bike from and if she could give me a ride in the basket later and she said it was a present from her Daddy and he said I COULD NOT ride in her basket. So I told her I would give her a ride on my big driving machine.
P.S. Fanks Ms. Carol.
