Mr. Brubaker owned,the best, "sweet" shop in town, he loved to make candies, and twice won a crown. The Slouch entered Brubaker's shop with a crash, and was running so fast, he knocked over the trash. The Slouch picked up candies and sweets as he fled, and as he ran out, he laughed and he said, "We Slouches eat anything, yes we all do, but lazy kids school books are best, this is true". He ran out the back of the small candy store, with Milly and I close behind, through the door. The alley, was at the back door of the shop, and as I ran out, I yelled, "Hey Slouch, you stop!!" But he didn't listen, he'd just laugh then he'd say, "keep chasing me all, you'll be running all day."
