Little Susie, a six-year-old, came home from school whining,
“Mommy, I’ve got a stomachache.”
“That’s because your stomach is empty,” her mother replied.
“You’d feel better if you had something in it.” She gave
Susie a snack and sure enough, Susie felt better right away.
That afternoon the family’s minister dropped by. While he
was chatting with Susie’s mom, he mentioned he’d had a bad
headache all day long.
Susie perked up. “That’s because it’s empty,” she said.
“You’d feel better if you had something in it!”
