Once upon a time there was a
little old woman and a little old man. They lived all alone and
were very happy together, but they wanted a child. Since they
had none, they decided to make one out of gingerbread. One day
the little old woman made a little gingerbread man, and put him
in the oven to bake.
When the gingerbread man was
done, the little old woman opened the oven door and pulled out
the pan. Out jumped the little gingerbread man – – and away he
ran. The little old woman and the little old man ran after him
as fast as they could, but he just laughed and said,
“Run, run, as fast as you can.
You can’t catch me!
I’m the Gingerbread Man!”
And Master J did just that… 🙂
