THE SUPERLATIVE STORY

 
 
 R ichard is in the world.  He never falls ill but if  he falls ill, it happens on Sunday or when his class goes on school trip one can imagine.  He never gets extra money, but if his granny gives him some coins he loses them. His trousers’ pockets have  holes  in them. He is a good student but  when  he writes an important class test, his pen runs out of ink. If he has a date with a girl , his bus breaks down. His canary is singing bird he has ever had. But when he proudly invites a schoolmate to listen to it, the canary becomes bird of all.

But Richard thinks he is very lucky. He thinks he is the luckiest boy of all. He has a wonderful mum and a wonderful dad, loving grandparents, an adorable little sister and a supportive big brother. His desk mate is the funniest in the school and the girls in his class are the prettiest.  He has an affectionate doggie and a wonderfully singing canary (not always). Richard is always happy because he has a great heart. He’s boy in town.

One day his mother gives him some money to buy an ice cream. He doesn’t put it into his pocket. When he arrives at the ice cream shop,  he sees a homeless man outside it. He looks hungry and Richard  thinks he is man in the world. He has very old clothes and terrible sunglasses.

 Richard looks at the ice cream in the shop window and then looks at the man. He decides not to buy the ice cream and gives the money to the poor man.

The man smiles and says “  Thank you very much. You are very generous. But  I’m not a poor man. On the contrary I’mman in town and I sometimes wear old clothes to see what people do. ”

The eccentric millionaire  takes Richard  to shop in the area and says to  him : “Choose the present you  prefer. Even one, if you want 
Richard asks:” Can I choose two, instead?”

“Of course” answers the man .

Richard chooses stereo because next time ,when his canary keeps silent , he will at least  be able to  listen  to music with his friends. He then chooses new sunglasses for the man.
