Moments with Joey - Too Many Jokers, Not Enough Aces...

Pin It

SCENE 1, INTERIOR. AFTERNOON, CLASSROOM. The rain is pelting down from the sky outside and can be heard plainly on the roof. The students are taking part in various inside activities as the teacher enters the math scores for the day. He becomes conscious of one fifth grade boy as he utters numbers repeatedly as if he were Dustin Hoffman from Rain Man.

JOEY: [From across the room, muttered] 42..52..42..42..52 [Louder] Mr. Z, 42!

[The teacher looks up from his laptop].

TEACHER: Joey, what in the world are you talking about?

[The boy holds up a handful of playing cards].

JOEY: I only have 42 cards!

TEACHER: And what does that mean?

[The boy pauses for a second].

JOEY: I’m not playing with a full deck?

TEACHER: You said it, not me…

[The boy bursts out laughing].


[Fade to black].

Joey... Joey... Joey... (Sad to say, the same could probably be said of me some days... :-) )

You know what they say...

"You got to know when to hold 'em.... know when to fold 'em... " LOL

So funny! Even funnier that you got him to end the joke about himself.

Mamma has spoken said...

Full decks are over-rated....
