Exercise 5.Read and smile.
The teacher was trying to explain the fundamentals of Science to her class. «Sir Isaak Newton was sitting under a tree looking up into it when an apple fell on his head, and from that he could discover the law of gravity. Was not that wonderful? »
«Yes, it certainly was», a pupil said, «and if he had been at school at his books, he would not have discovered anything».
A Trick on a President
W.H. Harrison was the ninth President of the United States. Like so many other early American presidents he was born in a small town. As a boy, he was extremely quiet. In fact, he was so quiet that he had the reputation of being very stupid (дурний). The town people therefore often used to play tricks (жарт) on him. For example, they would put a nickel and a dime (монети в 5 і 10 центів) in front of him and tell him to take whichever one he wanted. He would always choose the nickel and they would laugh at him.
One day, a woman took pity (пошкодувати) on him. She said: «William, why do you always choose the nickel instead (замість) of a dime? Do not you know that a dime, though smaller in size than a nickel, is worth (коштувати) much more than a nickel? »« Certainly I know it », William answered. «But if I chose the dime, they would not play the trick on me any more.»
