When they got back from their trip the father asked his son, "How was
"Very good, Dad!" his son replied.
"Did you see how poor people can be?" the father asked.
"Yeah!" he responded.
"And what did you learn?" the father asked.
The son answered, "I saw that we have one dog at home, and they have four.
We have a pool that reaches to the middle of the garden, they have a creek
that has no end. We have imported lamps in the garden, they have the stars.
Our patio reaches to the front yard, and they have a whole horizon." When
the little boy was finished, his father was speechless. His son added,
"Thanks, Dad, for showing me how poor we are!"
