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.
 
10     "Tell them to go away," Phil said. "Tell them I am sick."
 
11     "I will do no such thing," Polly said. "You get up right now!"
 
12     "No," Phil said.
 
13     Polly gave Phil her maddest look. She waddled back into the kitchen. She filled a glass with water. She put some ice in it. She went back to the bedroom.
