Wise Grandfather

Characters: Wise Grandfather (Cubmaster with beard), four Cub Scouts

Scene: Wise Grandfather is sitting on the floor with legs crossed looking up

(The first two Cub Scouts come in making a noise until they see Grandfather sitting there.)

Cub 1: Grandfather, what are you looking at?

Grandfather: I am looking for the sign of wisdom.

Cub 2: What is that sign, Grandfather?

Grandfather: Come sit on the floor beside me and I will tell you.

(The first two Cub Scouts sit down but at the same time the next two Cub Scouts come in making some noise. They stop making noise when they see Grandfather sitting with the other two Cub Scouts.)

Cub 3: Grandfather, what are you looking at?

Grandfather: I am looking for the sign of wisdom.

Cub 4: What is that sign, Grandfather?

Grandfather: Come sit on the floor beside me and I will tell you.

(Now all the Cub Scouts are seated. And they start talking among themselves. Grandfather then raises his hand in the Cub Scout sign. The Cub Scouts stop talking and raise their hands in the Cub Scout sign.)

Grandfather: That my young Cub Scouts is the sign of wisdom, for you cannot learn and grow wise if the only sound that you hear are you own voices.
