    Hey, Matt. Wanna hear a joke?

    Mmmmaybe …

    Come here, then. We don’t want the playground aide to hear it.

    Oh, I guess maybe I don’t want to hear it either.

    What’s the matter? Chicken?

    No. But Stretch is, and he doesn’t like those kinds of jokes either. He thinks they’re gross.

    Who? What?

    I mentioned your name to some guys at school. Hope you don’t mind.
