Title: There once was an old man...

There once was an old man that seemed very boring and did the same thing every day. After reading his newspapers, he stacked them up in a pile and saved them. He thought they would eventually teach him something. He sat at his desk wishing for a more exiting life than what he has now. Everything always seemed to go the same and nothing ever changed… One day he decided to stop living the same old boring life. He went outside where he saw a different life, a life of color and excitement. Things seemed so alive and different compared to what he was used to. He eventually decided to take his activities outside instead of staying inside bored all the time. He got a pillow for his knees and a pair of scissors for cutting the grass and started a new hobby. This was more productive, fun, and benefitted him more than reading his usual newspapers. So everyday he cuts his grass with scissors as an enjoyable activity which is healthier, exciting, and makes his happier. That’s who lives here.
