Little Johnny and his family seldom had guest, so he was eager to help his mother after his father appeared with two dinner guests from the office.
When the dinner was nearly over, little Johnny went to the kitchen and proudly carried in the first piece of apple pie, giving it to his father who passed it to a guest. Johnny came in with a second piece of pie and gave it to his father, who passed it to the other guest.
