When you think about it, being pocket lint is an adventure. You get
to travel far and wide. From a jacket pocket to a pants pocket...to a subway
ride....to a briefcase...to a pigtale...to a purple-striped sock....to a flower
bouquet....to a sandbox. It's all a great journey for those lucky enough to be a piece of pocket
Li'l Joey was wearing his favorite little cordouroy jacket. The one with the
little pockets and little buttons and especially the little pieces of lint that
like to ride around where ever Li'l Joey goes.
On this particular sunny day, Li'l
Joey was on a journey to the little lemonade stand on the corner. In his
pocket, he carried a bouncy ball and jacks, a nickel, giggle taffy, and
baseball cards. Within this
jumbled pile of goodies, sat Li'l Lint. Li'l Lint was so excited about his trip
to the lemonade stand. As we all know, Lints are all adventurous and love
great expeditions. As Li'l Joey reached in his little pocket for his little nickel, he grabbed Li'l Lint instead! When Li'l Joey pulled his hand out
of his little pocket, Li'l Lint went flying through the air and fell right into
Li'l Lucy's little pants pocket. There, Li'l Lint met Big Buddy Lint.
