Tricks of the Trade

There was a boy playing in his grandparents yard while his grandpa watched from the porch. At that point, a
worm squirmed up to the surface of the dirt and the boy pulled it out of the hole. Grandpa, on the porch said,
"I'll give you $5 if you can get the worm back into the hole." The boy tried and tried, but couldn't get the soft,
squirmy worm back into the hole. After a few minutes he went into the house and came back with a can of
hairspray. He sprayed the worm. It became very hard and the boy was able to put it back in the hole. The
grandpa laughed and gave the boy his $5. "That was a good trick!" he said. The next day, the boy was again
playing in the yard when his grandpa came over and handed him another $5. The boy was confused and said,
"What is this for?" The grandpa smiled and said, "Your Grandma thought that it was a neat trick too!"
