We love to post short stories on our blog. Most have a hidden message not always easy to decipher, some have a clear moral and others are just plain fun. At least, we hope that they get you thinking about life and its ups and downs. You might as well as pick up a few useful and interesting words and expressions.
Here’s a lovely story with a curious ending which we think will make you think twice about how you drive and your prejudices.
Two cars were being driven fast and in opposite directions along a winding country lane. It was late summertime, and the hedgerows on either side of the lane were lush and high. It was impossible to see around any of the corners.
Because of the heat of the day, both drivers had their windows wound down, and their minds were focused on the road ahead and their destination. And, as it happened, the driver of one of the cars was a man and the other was a woman.
They approached the final bend at speed, and they only just managed to see each other in time. They stepped on their brakes, and just managed to slide past each other without scraping the paintwork.
As they did so, the woman turned to the man, and through the open window she shouted: “PIG!”
Quick as a flash, he replied: “COW!”
He accelerated around the corner … and crashed into the biggest pig he’d ever seen.
The story finishes here but we can imagine what happened next … or can we?
Happy English learning!!
