A Penny for Your Thoughts
By Kathleen W. Redman
  

1     Dean stood by the door of the bank. He had $25.00 in his hand. He was not sure what to do with it. His father wanted him to put it in a savings account. Dean wanted to spend it on Spider-Man books. His father said he should save it for something more important. "Well, what's more important than Spider-Man books?" Dean thought.
 
2     As he stood there waiting for his father, he thought about some of Spidey's great deeds. He was a real hero! Dean really wanted to be just like him. Maybe someday he would be able to crawl up walls. He could see himself climbing right up the bank wall . . .
 
3     "Young man. Young man!" a voice said right beside Dean. "Young man, you need to move over," said the voice. "You're blocking the door!"
 
4     Dean was lost in his thoughts about being like his hero. The voice made him jump. "Oh, sorry," he said. "You scared me."
 
5     The security guard laughed. "It's okay. You stopped in front of the door. Some other people needed to go through it. You were really thinking hard about something. A penny for your thoughts."
 
6     Dean's face turned pink. He felt silly telling the guard about Spidey. "I was thinking about Spider-Man and climbing up this wall."
 
7     "Were you and Spidey going to break into the safe and steal all the money?" the guard asked.
 
8     "No," Dean said. "I was pretending to be Spider-Man," he said. "I know it sounds silly to you, but he is my hero."
 
9     The guard looked at Dean closely. "So you are another one," he said.
