THE FOX AND THE STORK
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.
