Freshly Baked Bread
“I will!” said Pig.
“I will!” said Duck.
“I will!” said Cow.
“No,” said Little Red Hen, “I’ll eat it all myself.”
The other animals hung their heads.
Damn, the farmer thought, she’s at it again. Now Pig will be off his feed, there’ll be no duck eggs, and I surely won’t get much milk from Cow today. “No,” he muttered, “you’ll not eat it all yourself.”
Watching Pig chew, the farmer smiled. Homemade bread makes delicious sandwiches, he thought, as he cut another slice and spread on the fresh chicken salad.
