Fun Story – Hard Rain

tui khi chen hang

A small boy and his father were having a walk in the country when it suddenly
began to rain very hard. They did not have their umbrellas with them, and there
was nowhere to hide from the rain, so they were soon very wet, and the small
boy did not feel very happy.
For a long time while they were walking home through the rain, the boy was
thinking. Then at last he turned to his father and said to him, ‘Why does it rain,
Father? It isn’t very nice, is it?’
‘No, it isn’t very nice, but it’s very useful, Tom,’ answered his father. ‘It rains
to make the fruit and the vegetables grow for us, and to make the grass grow for
the cows and sheep.’
Tom thought about this for a few seconds, and then he said, ‘Then, why
does it rain on the road too, Father?’
