a boy and a dog. He is eating sweets, which is not allowed. He licks his fingers. Dirty Peter, he is called, Little Peter. They are in the kitchen near the biscuit tin, but oh....
The name of the dog is Max. He is looking at the biscuit the boy is eating and he thinks: I don't get anything. Peter is having a chocolate, a dog cannot have that, he will fall ill.
Peter has a hole in his pants, his knee sticks out of it. He fell when he went for the biscuit tin. He asks his mum: 'Could I take the biscuit?'
'Yes, for this once.', his mum says, ' Just one, no more'.
Peter hears a sound. Is it the dog? No, not the dog, but what is it then? He hears churchbells and someone is coming, his dad. He has to come along to the church. But he is dirty and there is a hole in his pants. He will put another pair on. 'Do not cry, little boy', I say, 'You'll get another pair of pants but you also have to wash your face and hands! You have to put the cookie back in the tin'.
'No, that is impossible, that is dirty. I'll give the biscuit to the dog'. He is rubbing its hands, he likes it. He was watching all the time and didn't get anything. Look the way the dog is watching.
There is a glass of lemonade too, red lemonade, very sweet. I think he will drink it all, I think. He will drink it before the church but he has to hurry says his mum. ' Hurry up, she says, and then off to church.'
when the church is over, they are chitchatting with acquaintances that they meet there. they invite them home for a nice cup of coffee. And to talk about neighbors and people they know. You have attended religious service and then you are going to talk about other people? That is not good.But what can one do. We all do it once in a while.
Peter is sorry that there are no other children. Why aren't there any children? They make things so cozy. The acquaintances don't have children. They are used to that. One cannot miss what you don't know. I am not so sure about that...
All's well that ends well. But what is good here....?
