I think this story is about durable personalities. Brilliant.
Old Woman With A White Kerchief
An Old Woman with a white kerchief left her house in the morning.
She walked down the street saying things to annoy the children.
“There is a piece of candy in the street.”
“Red lips on little boys are there to annoy.”
She did this every day.
One day all the children on the street went to her house.
They pelted her front door with little pebbles.
She slipped out the back door and went to the other side of town.
She bought a donkey and brought it back to her house.
She told all the children that she would shoot the donkey if they didn’t leave.
No one said anything and no one moved.
So she shot the donkey.
The next day the Old Woman with a white Kerchief walked down the street saying things to annoy the children.
