~ 171. Shelter from the Storm ~


A couple were sleeping in their tiny hut.
"Help! Let me in!" a man shouted.
"There's no room," said the wife.
"It's pouring rain," said the husband. "We'll make room."
Everybody sat; there wasn't room to lie down.
Moments later, another voice. "Help! Let me in!"
"There's no room," said the first guest.
"We'll make room as we did for you," said the husband.
The four people sat there, squeezed very tight.
Moments later, "Hee-haw!"
"That's my donkey! Stand up and make room," the man said, letting the donkey in. "He's a good donkey, very patient. You'll enjoy his company."
