The florist's son handed his teacher a gift. 

She shook it overhead and said, "I bet I know what it is-some flowers."
"That's right," the boy said, "but how did you know?" 
"Oh, just a wild guess," she said.

The next pupil was the candy store owner's daughter.

The teacher held her gift overhead, shook it, and said, "I
bet I can guess what it is-a box of candy."
"That's right, but how did you know?" asked the girl.
"Oh, just a wild guess," said the teacher.

The next gift was a large box from the son of the liquor store owner.  
The teacher started to hold it overhead, but it was leaking. She touched a
drop of the leakage with her finger and tasted it.

"Is it wine?" she asked.
"No," the boy replied.

Puzzled, the teacher repeated the process, touching another drop of the
leakage to her tongue.

"Is it champagne?"  she asked.
"No," the boy replied.

The teacher then said, "I give up, what is it?"

The boy replied happily, "It's a puppy!"
