Man: “Have you gotten me that ticket?”
Dude: “Yep. Here you go.”
Man: “Wait, why is it one-way only? It’s expensive buying a second, you know.”
Dude: “Oh, sorry. I though that because nobody was expecting you to return, you wouldn’t want to.”.
This is a story. A story about a girl who was born, pure, innocent, by two curious human beings. Now these human beings, being so curious, got curious of each other, and the little girl was the result of their curiosity, and probably blooming love.
The human beings, yet still so curious, got themselves into an experiment. They decided that they’d teach their precious girl to see the difference between right and wrong; so the little girl was brought up, thinking, no, knowing, that “yes” means “no” and “no” means “yes”.
Now, she had a happy little childhood, as she was still too young to be let out and play with others, those who wouldn’t see between right and wrong, she was kept, happily, with her family. An example, of their conversation:
CuriousMom: “Do you want spaghetti meatball for dinner, sweetheart?”
LittleGirl: “No, mama!”
CuriousMom: : “All right then, spaghetti meatball it is.”
They loved each other.
But time passes by, until the day when kindergarten finally started.
Example number 2, between the girl and the caring patient teacher.
LessLittleGirl: “Good morning, miss caring patient teacher.”
CaringPatientTeacher: “Why, good morning, dear. Did you have a good time?”
LessLittleGirl: “No, miss. I did not.”
At this point, the caring patient teacher was a little annoyed, as she expected nothing from her children aside from being content with everything they had.
CaringPatientTeacher: “Isn’t that sad. Is there anything I can do to make you feel better?”
LessLittleGirl (smiled): “No, teacher. That’s be great.”
CaringPatientTeacher: “What do you mean, then? Don’t you trust me?”
LessLittleGirl (a little bit confused) : “No, teacher?”
CaringPatientTeacher (just a little bit pissed) : “Really? You don’t trust me?”
LessLittleGirl: “Yes, teacher. I do not trust you.”
Now, at this point, the caring patient teacher was losing her patience for the less little girl. She has never expected anything like this, from any of her children. And to her, it was unacceptable.
CaringPatientTeacher: “Are you trying to mess with me, young lady?”
LessLittleGirl (very confused): “Yes, teacher?” (and probably scared, abit, too).
Caring___Teacher: “That’s it, I’m calling your parents! And I do not expect you to come back here with this kind of attitude again, do you understand, missy?:
LessLittleGirl (started sobbing) : “No, teacher…”
When the curious mother human being came to pick her less little girl up, she was somewhat surprised, seeing her oh so fine daughter being glared at by the caring patient teacher. Well, at least she looked so in the morning. As they came home, she went to have a little chat with the other curious father human being, for the now-realized consequenses of their curiosity. And they came to agree that they should teach their innocent beloved again, for the sake of her view point.
CuriousFather: “Now, do you want spaghetti meatball?”
LessLittleGirl: “No, papa.”
CuriousMother: “If you want to, you must say “yes” to papa, darling.”
LessLittleGirl: “But why, mama? I like spaghetti meatball.”
CuriousFather: “Because that’s the way it is, now. Understand, darling?”
LessLittleGirl : “Yes, papa.”
The attempt went on and on for the whole afternoon, until the three tummy started to seriously growl; the original curious human beings looked at each other, sighed.
CuriousMom: “I’ll get you a spaghetti meatball, no?”
LittleLessLittleGirl (joyously) : “No, mama!”
Curious mother human being went to prepare for the meal, as she shared the same thought with curious father human being, secretly and sincerely thanking that the day she realizes her ability to say yes and no to them, truly, are still very far away.
So they kept enjoy eating their meal.
