There was1 once a large, fat woman. She had3 a small, thin husband4. He worked in a big office and got5 his weekly6 pay7 every Friday evening. As2 soon as he got home on Fridays, he had to give his wife8 all his money, and his wife gave9 him back only enough to buy his lunch in the office every day.
One day the small man came10 home very happily11. He hurried into the living12 room. His wife was listening to the radio and eating apples there.
"You'll never guess what happened to me today, dear," he said13. He waited for a few14 seconds and then said again, "I won15 ten thousand dollars buying the lottery16 tickets!"
"That's wonderful!" shouted his wife. Happily. But then she thought17 for a few seconds and said angrily, "But wait a minute! How could18 you have enough money to buy the tickets?"
