Come my Pumpkin

pumpkinOnce upon a time there lived an old lady. One day she decided to visit her daughter Sherry. Her daughter lived on the other side of the jungle. In the jungle lived lots of wild animals.

As the old lady was walking through the jungle, a big bad tiger jumped in front her. “Rooaarrr”, he roared, “Dear old lady, so thin and lean, you hardly have any meat. But I am so hungry; I think I will eat you.”

The old lady pleaded to the tiger “Please don’t eat me. Let me visit Sherry, let me be merry. Let me become fat and then you can eat me.”

The tiger thought for a while and said; “All right I will eat you when you return.”

So the old lady walked along for a little while when the big bad Grizzly bear jumped in front of her. “Grrrrrrr”, he growled, “Dear old lady, so thin and lean, you hardly have any meat. But I am so hungry; I think I will eat you.”

The old lady pleaded to the grizzly bear “Please don’t eat me. Let me visit Sherry, let me be merry. Let me become fat and then you can eat me.” The Grizzly bear thought for a while and said; “All right I will eat you when you return.”

So the old lady walked along for a little while when the big bad wolf jumped in front of her. “Howwwwl”, he howled, “Dear old lady, so thin and lean, you hardly have any meat. But I am so hungry; I think I will eat you.”

The old lady pleaded to the wolf “Please don’t eat me. Let me visit Sherry, let me be merry. Let me become fat and then you can eat me.” The wolf thought for a while and said; “All right I will eat you when you return.”

The old lady reached Sherry’s house. She had a very good time with her. She ate lots of food and indeed became fat. It was time to return home. The old lady was sad. She told her daughter about the tiger, the grizzly and the wolf waiting for her in the jungle. Sherry thought for little while and then went into the garden to get a big huge pumpkin. She carved the pumpkin so that the old lady could sit inside. She made two eyes for the old lady to see through. She made a mouth for the old lady to speak through. And then she gave the old lady some red pepper powder.

The old lady sat in the pumpkin and hopped along through the jungle. The big bad wolf jumped in front of the pumpkin. “Hi big pumpkin!! Have you seen the old lady?” The old lady sitting inside the pumpkin replied, “What old lady, what old Kady, come my pumpkin lets go jumpin” And she threw some red pepper powder into the wolf’s eyes.
