The optimist

Venky is discussing the 3 piglets story with his dad.
(For those who do not know the story – 3 piglets make their respective houses out of straw, sticks and bricks. The big bad wolf is able to blow the down the straw and stick houses but not the brick house)

Venky – “Is our house made of sticks?”
Papa – “No, it is made of bricks. It is a strong house.”
Venky – “Is our neighbor’s house made of sticks or straw?”
Papa – ” No. Nobody makes straw or sticks houses. All the houses are made of bricks.”

Venky is disappointed!
Venky – “So, who makes straw houses?”
Papa – “Uhmmm… maybe the bird does. Her nest is made of straw.”
Venky – “Then if somebody throws a stone, her house will fall?”
Papa – “Yes. Straw houses are not strong.”
Venky – “Then what will happen to the bird?”
Papa – “It will also fall down”
Venky – “No Papa, it will fly away!” 🙂   ===> Happy ending!
