Why Me?
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     "Phil! Phil! It's time to get up," Polly said. She pulled on Phil's blanket.
 
2     "Oh, go away," Phil said. "I want to sleep some more." He rolled over. He hid his head under his pillow.
 
3     "But you cannot go to sleep," Polly said. "Today is Groundhog Day."
 
4     "I don't care," Phil said. "They are not having a party for us, are they?"
 
5     "Now, dear," Polly said. "You know this is not about a party."
 
6     "Yes, I do, and I want to go back to sleep," Phil grumbled. "It is too cold to go outside anyway."
 
7     "Phil, you know what you have to do. It is important."
 
8     "Why me?" Phil asked. "Why didn't they get a rabbit? Rabbits like to be outside."
 
9     "Phil, there is no use grumbling. This is your job. People are waiting for you," Polly said.
