Nirav Learns about Sharing
Nirav: Boy! My mom packed me the best lunch. Lunch is my favorite part of school. I looked into my sack and what did I see? I saw a slice of strawberry pie, and a sandwich with lettuce, tomatoes, and dill pickles. Yum, yum, yum. I also have a bag of chips and a can of coke. Look out stomach, here it comes.
Nutan: Hello. Nirav, Can I sit at your table and eat with you?
Nirav: Sure. What kind of munchies did your mom put in your lunch? I am so hungry that I could eat everybody’s lunch sacks. You don’t look too hungry. Aren’t you starved?
Nutan: I guess so. My mom just fixes me the same thing every day. I am tired of it, too.
Nirav: Did you get a pie with all of that good filling?
Nutan: No, I’m not that lucky.
Nirav: All of this will soon be in my tummy. I can’t wait to eat. Did you get any fruit?
Nutan: No, but I got some crackers covered with peanut butter.
Nirav: What else did you get?
Nutan: That’s all.
Nirav: You eat only crackers? Won’t you be still hungry after you are finished?
Nutan: We don’t have enough money to buy extra things. My dad isn’t working full time. So this is all I get. Now let’s chow down.
Nirav: Your peanut butter and crackers sure do sound good to me.
Nutan: Do you want one? I can share, my mother won’t mind.
Nirav: Would you like to trade lunches. Yours sounds great. And I don’t think I will be able to eat all of mine.
Nutan: If you have just lost your appetite, then I have found it. I am going to have a great lunch. Thanks for sharing with me.
Nirav: No problem, after all that’s what friends are for!
(Both eat happily)
