The Little Boy and The Old Man

Said the little boy, "Somtimes I drop my spoon."
Siad the little  old man, "I do that too."
      The little boy wishpered, "I went my pants."
      "I do that too," laughed the old man.
Said the little boy, "I often cry."
The old man nodded. "So do I."
      "But worst of all," said the boy," It seems
