Little Timothy was a bright young boy, and he was even fairly handsome.
The only problem was that he was lost his eye in a fishing accident when he was younger.
His family was too poor to afford a glass eye, so his grandfather whittled him a wooden one.
He was made fun of all through school for his eye and it completely destroyed his self esteem.
But he was tired of letting the world get him down.
The school dance was coming up and he would be darned if he didn’t let himself have a good time.
Timothy had eyes for a girl named Sally.
She was shy and just as lonely as he was, due to having a fairly pronounced mustache, earning her the nickname, “Hair-lip”.
Well Timmy saw past her ‘stache and thought she was the most beautiful girl in school, and he decided he was going to ask her out.
He waited until lunch, and spotted her eating a peanut butter sandwich alone in the corner of the lunchroom.
He marched up to her and said, “Sally, I’ve been seeing you around for a while, and, well… Would you like to go to the dance with me?” Sally’s eyes lit up and she responded, “Would I!” “Hair-lip!” blurted Timothy and ran away.
