Once there were two ducks that always walked along the same road each day to go to the pond. As they went along, one of the ducks quacked to the other, " Why don't we go on a different path today. There are lots of other roads that lead to the pond?"
"No, no, no. I have always gone this way and I am not about to change my ways," said the biggest duck.
As the ducks walked along they came upon a very sly fox. "Hello ladies, how are you doing?"
"Oh we are just on our way to the pond." The ducks continued to waddled quickly to the pond.
The next day the duck that had wanted to go to the pond another way said, "Please, lets go the other way. If we go the same way that fox will surely eat us."
"Oh don't be such a worry wart," snapped the biggest duck.
So they both had gone the same way that they always had, and there was the fox waiting for them with a sack in his paw. As soon as the ducks walked by the fox pounced on them. The ducks ran screaming back to their house.
The next day the ducks took another road to the pond because they were both still in shock over what the fox did to them the day before.
|Moral: Sometimes it is best to change your ways|
