Country Cornflake I noticed you and the Little Flake switch off on them pants gets to wear the drawers too?
I thought you was my friend. I didn't think you like all the other people. I thought you was different.
Me and Rufus and Cody were on the bus right behind the driver one day when Larry Dunn waled up to our seat and said...
Maybe it was because everybody was laughing, maybe it was because Cody had such a strange look on his face while he peeked at his underpants maybe it was because I was glad Larry hadn't jumped on me, but whatever the reason was I cracked up too. Rufus shot a look at me. His face never changed but I knew right away I had done something wrong.
I am different.
"Hey Rufus, I thought you might want to play dinosaurs. It's your turn to be the Americans." Rufus looked at the pillowcase, then back at me."I ain't playing with you no more,Kenny." "How come?"I knew,though.
All of a sudden I started remembering how much I hate riding the bus,all of a sudden I,started remembering how lunchtime under the swing set alone wasn't much fun, all of a sudden I started remembering that before Rufus came to Flint my only friend was the biggest dinosaur thief,LJ jones all of a sudden I remembered that before Rufus and Cody were the only two kids in the whole school(other that Byron and Joey) that I didn't automatically look sideways.
Momma and Joey were in the living room and when they heard the knock everything there got real quiet. Rufus and Cody were there smiling a mile a minute.I said,"Rufus,I'm sorry.He said,"That's O.K." I wasn't through though. I really wanted him to.....
He said"Shoot, Kenny,you think I don't know? Why you think I came back? But remember, you said it's my turn to be the Americans,"People started moving around the living room. I guess I should have told momma I really appreciate her helping get my friend back. But I didn't have to. I was pretty sure she already knew.
