II. One Saturday morning, an old woman opened her windows and looked out into her yard. What a sunny day! But she was surprised - there was a man in her front garden.
The old woman looked at him and thought, “Why is he eating the grass?”
She went out into her garden and asked him, “Are you hungry? Why don’t you go to work and get some food?”
“I don’t like working. I just like eating. I’m hungry and I had nothing for breakfast. You see, I’m eating grass. Can you give me some food?” the man asked.
“Let's go to the back of my house,” she answered.
The man was very happy. He thought he might get some food from the old woman. So he went with her. The old woman opened the back door. “Look, the grass here is longer than it is in the front garden. Help yourself!” she said.
