WATER: Today is a wonderful day!.

 

SUN: Oh, yes, it is!.  I’ll feed the birds, and you’ll  give them water to drink.

 

(The Sun gives sunflower seeds to the birds, and the water gives them water to drink)

 

WATER: Hey, why don’t you come tomorrow to my house?.  I’ll bake a delicious seaweed pie.  I know how much you like it!.

 

SUN: Sure, why not?.

 

WATER: Great!.

 

SUN: Instead of me coming to your house, why don’t you come to mine?.  My wife, the moon, will bake the cake!.

 

WATER: Well, I have a lot of things to do in the morning,  and then in the afternoon I…

 

(The Sun interrupts the water)

 

SUN: You never come to my house.   You always have an excuse for not coming.  I really want to know why you never visit me.

 

WATER: It’s not that I don’t want to come to your house, it’s because as I told you before, I have things to do, and it’s easier for me to…

 

 

(The Sun interrupts the water)

 

SUN: Excuses!.

 

WATER: OK.  Do you really want to know the truth?.

 

SUN: Yes!.

 

WATER: It’s because your house is too small, well, I mean it is not big enough.

 

SUN: It’s only you, my wife, and I.  Come on, three people can fit perfectly in my house.

 

WATER: Try to understand.  All my people are coming with me,  then we will drive you out of your home.  So, for the last time; if you want me to come to your house, then you will have to build a larger house.

 

SUN: How big?.

 

WATER: Big enough.  My people are numerous and they need a lot of room.

 

SUN: Very well. I’ll build a very large house.

 

WATER: Are you sure you want to do this?.

 

SUN: Yes, I do.  I promise that I will build a larger house so that you and all your people can come visit me.

 

WATER: Great!.

 

SUN: What time is it?.

 

WATER: It’s almost six.

 

SUN: Almost six!.  Oh no, my wife must be waiting for me!.   I have to go.  See you.

MOON: Really?.  When?.

 

SUN: As soon as I build a larger house.

 

MOON: What?.  We don’t need a larger house.  This house is fine for the two of us.

 

SUN: I know sweety, but I promised it to the water.  Besides, one day or another I would have to build a larger house, so the sooner, the better.
