Narrator:Once upon a time there was a Fox and a Stork who were very good friends.One day the Fox invited the Stork to dinner.

Fox:Would you like to come to dinner?

Stork:Sure.What will you cook?

Fox:It will be a surprise!

Stork:When and at what time shall I come?

Fox:How about tomorrow night at seven?

Stork:Sounds good for me.See you tomorrow.

Fox:See you… and be on time!

Stork:I will!

Narrator:Next day the Stork arrived on time at the Fox`s house.

Fox:Hello!Come and sit down… dinner is ready.

Stork:Tell me…what did you cook?

Fox:I cooked a delicious soup…I`m sure you will like it!

Narrator:But when the Stork sat down at the table, the fox served the soup in a very shallow dish.

Fox:What`s wrong?

Stork:It`s just that I can`t eat it with my long beak.

Fox:Oh, really? Well at least you can wet the end of your long bill in it, right?

Stork:Well… yes, but… never mind…anyway I hope you will return this visit, and come and dine with me soon.

Fox:Of course I will.

Stork:How about tomorrow night?

Fox:I`ll be there!

Narrator:So that night the Stork went home hungry.Next day the Fox showed up on time at the Stork´s home.

Stork:Come in, my good friend… I was expecting you.

Fox:What did you cook?

Stork:Since you are my special host, I cooked your favorite food… a delicious soup!

Fox:Oh, really?

Stork:Sure… come and sit down… dinner is served.

Narrator:But the Fox was surprised to see that the soup was served in a very long-necked jar with a narrow mouth.

Fox:The soup indeed looks delicious, but my good friend… I can`t even insert my snout in this jar!

Stork:Oh, really? Well at least you can lick the outside of the jar, right?

Fox:Well… yes… but… never mind.

Stork:Listen, my good friend, I am not sorry to say this… but one bad turn deserves another.

The End
