I plucked this story out of an American reading book for junior high school students in the 1950s (I feel). It’s a light and funny read, yet it relates to something serious in anyone’s life.
*thinks of something serious*
I have experienced similar situations, but so far there is not a character who suits the place of that elderly gentleman. Enjoy this, anyhow!
(I know! Widows and orphans are not good! I’ll take care next time)
