“Hello, old chap you got to work, hey?Tom wheeled suddenly and said:Why, it’s you, Ben! I warn’t noticing.” “ Say I’m going in a-swimming, I am. Don’t you wish you could. But of course, you’d druther work wouldn’t you? Course you would!Tom contemplated the boy a bit and said:What do you call work?“ “ Why, ain’t that work?Tom resumes his whitewashing, and answered carelessly:Well, maybe it is, and maybe it ain’t. All I know is, it suits Tom Sawyer.” “ Oh, come, now, you don’t mean to let on that you like it?The brush continued to move. “Like it? Well, I don’t see why I oughtn’t to like it.Does a boy get a chance to whitewash a fence every day?That put the thing in a new light.
