Michael Meets the So-wi-bam
By Joyce Furstenau
  

1     When Michael met the So-wi-bam, he really got a shock. The So-wi-bam burst in the door and didn't even knock.
 
2     "How rude," said Mike, "Please ring the bell or knock before you come."
 
3     The So-wi-bam sat down and said, "Got ice cream? I want some!"
 
4     Mike could not believe his eyes, or what his ears had heard. What kind of person walks right in without a knock or word?
 
5     "I am a So-wi-bam," he said. "I do not need to be polite. I'll throw a tantrum when I want, and I am always right. Someone-With-Bad-Manners is my official name, but you can call me So-wi-bam, to me it's all the same."
 
6     Mike closed the door and came right back so he could say hello. The So-wi-bam sat on the floor and fiddled with his toe.
 
7     Mike offered him a chair and spoke in gentle tones, "You should not do these kinds of things in other people's homes."
 
8     The So-wi-bam let out a belch and grabbed a piece of cheese.
