FC: The Giving Hamburger!
1: Once there was a hamburger...... and she loved a little French fry. Every day the French fry would come and put on the hamburger's sesame seeds and arrange them into faces. He would draw in her condiments and jump on her bun. And when he was tired he would sleep in her lettuce. And the French fry loved the hamburger.....very much. And the hamburger was happy.
2: But time went by and the French fry grew older and the hamburger was often alone. Then one day the French fry came to the hamburger and the hamburger said: "Come French fry. Come arrange my sesame seeds and draw pictures in my condiments and jump on my bun and sleep in my lettuce and be happy." "I am too bored too arrange your sesame seeds."said the French fry. "I want some money. Can you give me some money?" "I'm sorry." said the hamburger. "I have no money. But take my condiments French fry. Use them to make pictures and sell them in the city. Then you will have money and you will be happy." And so the French fry scooped up her condiments and carried them away in buckets. And the hamburger was happy. But the French fry stayed away for a long time............ and the hamburger was sad.
3: Then one day the French fry came back and the hamburger shook with joy and she said:" Come French fry, come arrange my sesame seeds and jump on my bun and sleep in my lettuce and be happy." "I am too busy to sleep in your lettuce." said the boy. "I want a house. I want a family and shelter so I need a house. Can you give me a house?" "I have no house." said the French fry. "The restaurant is my home. But take my lettuce and tomato French fry. Use them to build a house. Then you will be happy." So the French fry took her lettuce and tomato away to build a house. And the hamburger was happy.
4: But the French fry stayed for along time. And when the French fry came back the hamburger was so happy she could hardly speak. "Come boy." she whispered. "Come jump on my bun." "I'm to old too jump i want a raft to carry me away. Can you give a raft?" " Take my burger and then you can sail away and be happy." So the French fry took out her burger and made a raft and sailed away. And the hamburger was happy........ but not really.
6: After a long time the French fry came back again. "I'm sorry." said the hamburger. " But i have nothing left to give you. I barely have any sesame seeds left." " My hands are too weak for sesame seeds." said the French fry. "My condiments are all gone." said the hamburger. "You can not draw in them." " I'm too old to draw." said the French fry. "My bun has become old. You can not jump on it." " I'm too tired to bounce." said the French fry." I'm so sorry." sighed the hamburger. " I wish i could give you something, but i have nothing left. I'm just an old hamburger bun. I am sorry.........""i don't need much now." said the French fry."Just a quiet place to sit and rest." "Well." said the hamburger, straightening her self up as much as she could. "Well an old bun is good for sitting and resting.Come French fry, sit down. Sit down and rest." And the French fry did and the hamburger was happy
