It was some time ago, when creatures called dragons still lurked in remote forests, that there lived a boy called Jody. He was of the gangly sort, knobby knees and all, and his hair had limited encounters with a comb (much to his mother’s dismay).
Jody and his mother lived on a tiny farm in the countryside. The two shared their abode with an array of some of the most mischief making barnyard animals that you would ever have the pleasure of meeting. And it was their duty to keep Jody on his toes while his mother worked at her spinning wheel weaving brightly colored coats and coverlets.
This particular day, Jody was in a hurry to do his morning chores because it was market day for him and his mother.
The poor cow did her best not to flinch as Jody tugged hastily at her udders. Then Jody quickly moved on to collect some eggs from a group of objecting, clucking chickens despite their protest.
"All right, time for breakfast," called out Jody, which is music to any pig’s ears.
Pinky the pig watched and waited while Jody tossed corn and hay to the others. His little, curly tail began to wag furiously as soon as he saw the slop bucket in Jody’s hands, and he ran immediately to his feeding trough.
But Jody, being occupied with his hurry, accidentally poured the slop directly on the pig’s head instead of into the trough.
"Oh, Pinky! I am sorry about that," said Jody, giving Pinky a gentle pat on the rump.
But Pinky was delighted, as apparently there is no wrong way to feed a pig.
About that time, Jody’s mother began to call him. It was time for them to go to the marketplace, where Jody would help his mother sell her beautiful silken coats and warm woolen coverlets.
The two set off with a neatly packed cart and hopes for a good day of business.
