Talking Dictionary987. Father Feeds Family Second


987. Daddy came home. Julia, his oldest child, hugged him. "Daddy, did you bring us some food? All we had for breakfast was a banana." Daddy said, "As a matter of fact, honey, I did bring food. But, you know, the neighbors are hungry too. So I'm going to bring them some food first, and if there's any leftovers, I'll bring them back for you guys, okay?" Daddy went to the neighbors' place. When he returned, there was a little food left. His kids wolfed it down. After licking her fingers thoroughly, Julia said, "Daddy, shouldn't you feed your own family first, and then if there's any leftovers, take them to the neighbors?" He said, "Remember, 'Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.' Someday as adults, all of you might be hungry, and your neighbor will bring you food." Julia said, "Sure. If we live that long!" 4.0
