Bud is hiding in the bushes on the side of the road when a man pulls over looking for him.
Say Hey! Say Hey!
Shucks. How did he know I was so hungry?
"You know what? I bet if I can't get you to come out with talk I got something else that might make you show your face.
"From the quick look I got at you, you seemed a little on the puny side. I’ll bet anything you're hungry. Just so happens that I've got a spare baloney and mustard sandwich and an apple in the car. You interested?"
"I knew I saw something. A deal's a deal so I'll go get your food, all right?"
"Just leave them at the side of the road and I’ll get them. And please open the bottle of pop, sir, I don't have a bottle opener."
"Oh, no, can't do that. The deal is I feed you, you show me your face."
He snatched the bottle out of my hand, grabbed my arm, walked me over to thepassenger's side of the car and started to open the door.
"I ran away from Grand Rapids, sir."
"Well I’ll be ...,That's where I'm from"
I put my hands on the steering wheel and looked at the gearshift to try to figure which way was "Go." I pulled the gear lever down and the car took off
Then he made his first mistake, he let go of my arm. I locked the door and crawled over to the driver's side of the car and pulled that door closed and locked it.
