      • A diller, a dollar,
        A ten o'clock scholar,
        What makes you come so soon?
        You used to come at ten o'clock,
        But now you come at noon.

        ...the nursery rhyme whence the title comes

      • At the beginning of this story, Teddy was afraid to talk to God. Both Davey and Teddy were afraid to go the Principal's office after being late, but after they talked to him, The principal understood the situation and attended to Teddy's mother's needs. That is the same way with God. If you talk to him, even in a time of trouble, with trust, he will attend to your needs.
