The second lady said, “I told my husband to get vegetables from the market. He went, but came back without them. When I asked him, he said that he had forgotten why he had gone to the market.”
The third one said, “One day I was going out with my friends when I saw my husband walking with my friends when I saw my husband walking with his friends.

The teacher asked, “what is the difference between the light of the sun and that from electricity?”
The students replied that the sun’s light comes free of change while electricity has to be paid for. This is the difference between the natural and the artificial. That which is natural is and the artificial. That which is natural is invaluable. There is no difference between the rich and the poor here. Amongst the artificial, this difference does exist and therefore money is of value here.
