The Gingerbread Man

28 02 2010

The old gingerbread man who awoke from a 90 year nap had just stretched out his brittle arms and brushed against a beetle. He was standing behind the oven amidst very dusty cobwebs when a smell of fresh gingerbread drifted by his nose. Panic and fear swept through his frail body and he began to quickly hobble towards the front of the oven. Carefully, he climbed up the ledge to where he could look through the oven window. He was horrified. Several gingerbread boys were flailing their arms. The old gingerbread man knew he must save the boys before they were completely baked. But how would he open the oven? He glanced towards the counter and saw a peanut butter jar with a fork. He miraculously hoisted himself up and lassoed the fork from the jar, but as he did so, the peanut butter jar flipped through the air and fell on the old gingerbread man’s right foot. Now without a right foot, the old gingerbread man slowly hobbled down to the oven ledge where he pried open the oven door with the fork. As soon as the door opened, the old gingerbread man saw that the gingerbread boys weren’t baking–but partying. Licorice sticks, gooey gumdrops, and mints flew threw the air like sports balls. Suddenly, the gingerbread boys started to chase the old gingerbread man. Soon the boys pounce upon the old gingerbread man. He fears he’ll become a pile of crumbs. But begins to laugh when he sees the gingerbread boys licking his fork covered in peanut butter. Soon the smallest and most daring of the gingerbread boys smiles and splashes the old gingerbread man with warm and salty butter. The old gingerbread man isn’t a hero but a friend.
