Viola has always been one of Lickety-Split’s best volunteers. Some might even call her ‘easy’ - she just never says no. Recently, however , when she volunteered to sell the token/tickets at the local school fair she got more than she bargained for.
You see this year the board determined to put the cotton candy and kettle corn tables on either side of the main ticket table. This meant poor Viola was hemmed in by the sugary sweet smells of the cotton candy and the greasy-sweet smells of the kettle corn. As the day got warmer poor Theodora felt taken with a strong case of the vapors (quite literally).
Eventually she totally succumbed and was carried off the school grounds by the volunteer rescue squad. As they carried her out we could hear her somewhat shaken voice whispering - I QUIT!!! I suspect she’ll be saying those two words more than once during the coming volunteer year.
"Cause you had a bad day
You're taking it down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
You had a bad day"
