NARRATOR:  Once upon a time there was a king who dreamed that he had lost all his teeth.  When he woke up he told one of his servants.



KING: Oh, I had a terrible dream!.  Well, it was really a nightmare!.



SERVANT:  What was it about?.



KING:  I dreamed that I lost all my teeth!.  I wonder what it means.



SERVANT:  Your majesty, if you want to, I can tell the witch from the forest to come and give you an interpretation of your dream.



KING:  Go to her house and tell her to come right away.  I am really worried.



SERVANT:  I will be right back.



NARRATOR:  The servant went to the witch`s house and told her about the king`s dream.  When she went to the palace she said.



WITCH:  Oh, you’re so unfortunate, King!.



KING:  Why?.



WITCH:  Each fallen tooth represents the death of one of your relatives, your majesty.



KING:  Then, I will be left alone.



WITCH: Yes, your majesty.  You will be all alone.



KING:  What an insult!.  How do you dare to tell me such a thing!. Get out of here!.



WITCH:  But…



KING:  Guard!.



NARRATOR:  When the guard entered the room, the king said.



KING:  Take this woman to jail, and never let her out!.



GUARD:  Yes, your majesty.



NARRATOR:  The guard and the witch left the room.  Meanwhile the king told his servant.



KING:  Who will help me now?.  She was my only hope.



SERVANT:  No, your majesty, I can still bring the wisest man from the kingdom.



KING:  Very well, I hope he can help me.



SERVANT:  I will be right back.



NARRATOR:  The servant went to the house of the wiseman and told him about the king`s dream.



WISEMAN:  Take me to the King.  I know exactly what his dream means.



SERVANT:  Let`s go.



NARRATOR:  When the wiseman was at the palace, he said.



WISEMAN: Oh, happiness is waiting for you, your majesty!.  Your dream means that you will live longer than all of your relatives.



KING:  Then I will live many, many years?.



WISEMAN:  Yes, your majesty, you will even outlive all your relatives. Long Live the King!.



KING:  I am really pleased with your interpreatation!.  That is really good news.  Guard come here!.



NARRATOR:  The guard entered the room and he said.



GUARD:  Should I take him to jail, your majesty?



KING:  On the contrary, give this man a hundred gold coins!.



WISEMAN:  Oh, thank you!.



KING:  You deserve it!.   Now I am completely sure that you are the wisest man in my kingdom. Guard, escort him to the palace gates.



GUARD:  Come with me, Sir.



NARRATOR:  When the wiseman and the guard left the room the servant was outside listening to whole conversation, then he said.



SERVANT:  It`s not possible!.  The witch told him the same thing you did.  Both of you made the same prediction, but she was sent to jail, and you received a hundred gold coins. I can`t believe it!.



WISEMAN:  Remember, my friend, that all depends on the way you say things. There is a great difference in how you delivered the message.   One of the great challenges of mankind, is to learn how to communicate.



NARRATOR:  And the wiseman left the palace with a hundred gold coins.
