Pea Porridge

One day, an old woman found leftover pea porridge in a pot. She shook her head and thought…This pea porridge is no longer good. It is nine days old already. It would be such a waste. But some animals might like it.’

Therefore, the old woman put the pea porridge into a bowl and placed the bowl in the lawn. Not long after that, a dog came by and ate the porridge. A short while later, a rat came by to take a bite of the porridge.

In the evening, all of the pea porridge had finished. The old woman was very glad.

Moral of the story :

Do not throw away old things. Sometimes, a man’s junk is another man’s treasure.
