Meghan Wants To Be President
By Phyllis Naegeli
  

1     "Someday, I'm going to be president," Meghan announced at breakfast.
 
2     "You are?" her mother, Mrs. Edwin, exclaimed.
 
3     "Yes, I am," said a determined Meghan. "We've been studying the presidential election, and I have decided that I want to be president."
 
4     Mrs. Edwin looked at her husband. "Well, dear, what do you think?"
 
5     "I think it's a great idea," said Mr. Edwin.
 
6     "Really?" said Meghan. "Will you help me?"
 
7     "I'd love to, but first - why do you want to be president?" Mr. Edwin asked.
 
8     "Being president is a very important job. I want to have an important job," said Meghan proudly.
 
9     "Any other reasons?" asked Mr. Edwin.
 
10     "Well, we've learned a lot about what the president does. It sounds like a fun job, too," said Meghan.
