We see a young man who is smoking a cigarette with a tissue in his mouth. His name is Bill and he lives in Hong Kong, he is a coconut delivery man. Today he is delivering coconuts to the person who lives downstairs.
Bill is in his late teens, he has two brothers and one sister. His family and his parents approve of Bill’s job as a coconut delivery man. He heard about the job from his older brother Bob, who had the job before and is now a retired coconut delivery man.
We think that he could be delivering about a zillion coconuts. We know this is a farfetched number because the coconuts would be rolling all over and no one is sure how many zeroes are in a zillion. After taking a closer look, Cathy remarks that there are only three coconuts on top and maybe six on the bottom. Isabelle sees only two kinds of coconuts. But we call it a zillion because it’s a fun number to say.
As Bill heads downstairs, he falls and drops all the coconuts. When a zillion coconuts fall down the stairs they make a sound like “Tumbling! Tumbling! Tumbling!” We think he might have hurt himself, and injured his neck or even his head.
After dropping the coconuts down the stairs, Bill begins to pick them all up. Luckily, none of the coconuts are broken and he is able to complete his delivery. After making the delivery, Bill heads home to his apartment upstairs.
Bill very much enjoys his job as a coconut delivery man.
