One spring evening, after a hard rain, grandpa and grandson were
sitting out on the porch, talking. Grandpa spied a worm crawling up out
of its hole and said to his grandson, "Sonny, if you can get that there
worm back down its hole, I'll give you five dollars."
"Sure!", says sonny, and runs in the house. Out he runs an
instant later with a can of hairspray, grabs the worm, and sprays it with
the hairspray as it dangles earthward. He then slips the stiff worm back
into its hole and turns to his grandpa with a huge smile on his face.
"Well, I'll be. That was pretty smart there, boy.", he says.
"Here's your fiver.", he adds as he fishes out a bill. By then it's almost
dark, and they say their goodnights and part.
The next day sonny's playing out on the porch, and grandpa comes
out of the house and gives him a five. "But you gave me my five yesterday,
grandpa.", he remarks.
"Yep, I know. This is from your Grandma."
