The Rat in the Rice Tank

01 Jun

Once there was a rat. He was very skinny, because he had been wandering for quite some days now, with an empty stomach. One day, as he was walking in the woods, he saw a nice house. He snickered to himself and sneaked inside. There was no one home. Probably the owner was on vacation. He saw  a vase on the table. It smelled like food, so he climbed up the table to have a look. He climbed all the way to the tip and tried to climb in. It wouldn’t let him in, so he tried even harder to get in. Instead, the vase wobbled and it flipped him all the way to the end of the table, into the rice tank.

He was scared at first, then touched the white rice to examine.

” Oh my goodness! It’s rice!”

Then, he ate and ate and ate, until he was full. He wanted to get out, but then thought,

” If I get out, then I’ll never be able to eat this ever again. Hmm.. Just a little more.”

So he ate even more. He lie down for a nap. When he woke up, he ate more.

“Ahh.. Why not just stay here forever and ever and ever? I’ll never have to look for food again!” he thought.

So he ate. And stayed there. One day, the rice  ran out.

“oh no! The rice ran out! Well.. Perhaps it’s time to go now.”

He tried to climb up the side of the tank, but he kept sliding down.

“What’s happening? It’s supposed to let me out, and I’m supposed to jump right out without struggling! Oh no! What now? What if someone finds me?” Actually, he didn’t excersize at all! So he grew fat.

So he stood there. just then, the owner of the house came back. Thr rat was wiggling so much, that the rice tank shook!The owner noticed, and the rat had no choice but to get caught.
