Appropriate Gifts

[Found at Old Horsetail Snake...]

It was the end of the school year, and the kindergarten teacher was receiving gifts from her pupils. The florist's son handed her a long box, and she said "I bet I know what it is. Some flowers?" "Right," said the boy. "How did you know?" "Just a wild guess," she said.
The daughter of the owner of a candy store produced a gift. The teacher shook it, and said, "I bet I know what this is. A box of sweets?" "That's right," said the girl, "but how did you know?" "It was a lucky guess," said the teacher.
The next gift came from a boy whose father owned the liquor store. The teacher held the package overhead -- and noticed it was leaking. She touched a drop with her finger, put it on her tongue, and asked the boy: "Is it wine?"
"No," the boy replied.
The teacher took up a larger drop and said, "Is it champagne?"
"No," said the boy, with great excitement.
The teacher sipped one more drop, and declared, "I give up. What is it?"
"It's a puppy!!!"
