THE GOAT JUMPING INTO THE DEEP HOLE

Two men were walking through the woods and come across a very big deep hole. “Wow…that looks deep.” One replied,”Sure does… toss a few pebbles in there and we will see how deep this hole is.” Then they pick up a few pebbles and throw them in and wait… no noise “Geeez. That is really deep… here.. throw one of these great big rocks down there. Those should make a noise.” After that, they pick up a couple football-sized rocks and toss them into the hole and wait… and wait. but no noise they heard.

Wow.. They were really impressed with how deep hole it was. They look at each other in amazement. One gets a determined look on his face and says, “Hey…over here in the weeds, there’s a railroad tie. Help me carry it over here. When we toss that sucker in this hole, it’s must make some noise.”

The two men drag the heavy tie over to the hole and heave it in. But, not a sound comes from the hole. Suddenly, out of the nearby woods, a goat appears, running like the wind. It rushes toward the two men, then right past them, running as fast as its legs will carry it. Suddenly it leaps in the air and into the hole. The goat disappeared into the deep hole.

The two men are astonished with what they’ve just seen. How could a goat jump into the hole? Then, not long after that, out of the woods comes a farmer. He seemed to seek something and asked to the two men, “Hey two guys… have you seen my goat out here?”

Feeling amazing with what they saw of a goat jumping to the hole, they answer straightly,”You bet we did! Craziest thing I’ve ever seen! A goat came running like crazy and just jumped into this hole!”

The farmer thought a moment and said, “That could not have been my goat. Because my goat was chained to a railroad tie.” Then he left the two men.

Don`t Forget Again

My father had an operation in his stomach. He had to stay for his recovery a few days, four or three day maybe, in Murangan Hospital. My mother was there too, accompanied my father of course. But, I and my young sister stayed at home.

It was a day after my father had an operation. I and my sister were going to look our father in the hospital after school. My mother noticed me if I wanted to go there, don’t forget to bring mp3 player and thermos.

At 4 pm we were home and prepared all things which should to bring. Of course I didn’t forget to brought mp3 player and thermos. At about 4.30 pm, we were ready at all.

We arrived at 5 pm. It was cloudy enough. Then we went to my father’s room immediately. As everyone did at the hospital, so do us!

After a while, my mother said to me, to make sure that I remembered to bring mp3 player and thermos. Then I showed her that I was not bad in memorized. But! What happened? Actually I didn’t forget. But, I forgot to bring my school bag where my mp3 player’s headset was there. Oh my god! I looked very stupid that time.

How my father can use the mp3 player without a headset? But my parents tolerated it.

At 5.30 pm, I went home alone, I mean my sister still in the hospital, but I went back home to take the headset and some others which demanded by my mother before such 1 kg apples and knife. Am! I will not forget it!

Guess what! I didn’t forget! Really! But, a thing that was very important than the others, that’s the key! I was totally forgotten of it. I just memorized to bring the headset, apples, and knife. I forgot that the home key was brought by my sister. So, what should I do? I just waited Maghreb while playing harmonica. I was so regretted for my self. I was very bad, and stupid!


THE BEST AND THE WORST

Joe Sanders has the most beautiful garden in our town. Nearly everybody enters for ‘The Nicest Garden Competition’ each year, but Joe wins every time. Bill Frith’s garden is larger than Joe’s. Bill works harder than Joe and grows more flowers and vegetables, but Joe’s garden is more interesting. He has made neat paths and has built a wooden bridge over a pool. I like gardens too, but I do not like hard work. Every year I enter for the garden competition too, and I always win a little prize for the worst garden in the town!
