A Breeze for Sale

A Breeze for Sale

 

There once was a rich businessman who had a lot of everything, especially money.

 

He had so much money that he didn’t know what to do with it. He saw a sign saying, “A Breeze for Sale.”

 

So he decided to buy himself a breeze. But the breeze was mischievous and restless, which is why the old salesman was selling it in the first place.

 

The breeze wouldn’t let the businessman live in peace or just be still. It kept reminding him that there are people who are cold and hungry.

 

So the businessman decided to start helping people. He became poorer, kinder and happier, and he really treasured his breeze.
