There once was a very poor man who scrimped and saved to buy a goose. For weeks after he bought the goose, it laid no eggs. The man was distraught thinking he'd lost his investment. But one morning he went out and underneath the goose was a golden egg. The man couldn't believe his eyes. He laughed, danced, and kissed his wife.
He went into town sold the egg and bought enough food for his family for a month. A few weeks later, the goose laid another golden egg. Again, the man was so happy. He took the egg to town, sold it, and bought shoes for his children and a new dress for his wife.
