公车奇遇 The Bus Ride


A young boy named Tom remembers his family driving about a hundred miles to visit his grandparents. Tom especially enjoyed his grandmother's delicious cookies and her flower garden. When it was time for the family to return home, little Tom stayed behind on an extended visit with his grandparents for the summer.

One year when Tom was ten years old, his parents put him on a bus to make the long trip alone. Tom had a bag of clothes and his favorite toy: a red, white and blue flute packed away neatly in a box. Along the way, the bus passed through small towns, wooded areas and meadows full of fresh cut hay for cattle. The day was full of sunshine and the pleasant ride made Tom sleepy.

When the bus stopped in the town where his grandparents lived, Tom grabbed his bag and box as he stepped off the vehicle. His grandfather met the bus and after grandmother greeted Tom with hugs and kisses, she opened the box and exclaimed, "Tom, what is this?" Tom replied, "It is my flute". Well, grandmother laughed because there was quite a surprise in the box. It was NOT a flute, but a fresh chicken all prepared for the oven and some eggs. She saw a name written on the box and went to the neighbors to use the telephone to call and apologize for the mistake and got an address so she could send some money to pay for the chicken and eggs. This happened during the Second World War when everything was rationed, and food was scarce, so it was very important to try to correct the error.

But, where was the flute? It was found safely packed away in the bag of clothes, so everything turned out all right after all.
