It was a warm summer afternoon. Christopher Corn was walking along a country road. He was returning home from taking some time to enjoy nature. As he was walking, he saw a young girl and young boy sitting on a rock by the side of the road.
“I don’t like vegetables,” said the girl.
“What are you talking about?” asked the boy. “Vegetables are good for you.”
“I think they are over-rated,” said the girl.
“Little girl,” said Christopher. “I am sorry but I couldn’t help but hear that you don’t like veggies.”
“I don’t,” said the girl.
“Wait a minute,” said the boy recognizing Christopher. “You are Christopher Corn, aren’t you?”
Yes,” said Christopher. “I am.”
“Sis,” said the boy. “You should take back what you said about not liking vegetables.”
“Why?” asked the girl.
“Julie,” said the boy. “Do you not know who this is?”
“Oh my!” screamed Julie. “Billy, why didn’t you tell me sooner. Christopher, I love your music!”
“Thank you,” said Christopher. “Now, about you not liking vegetables. I will make you a deal. You eat all your vegetables for a week and I will give you and your brother free tickets to our next concert. Billy is going to report to me every day to let me know which veggies you have eaten.”
Julie was very excited about getting free tickets to see Loud Garden perform. She did eat all her veggies for the week. Christopher gave her the tickets, like he promised.
“Oh thank you,” said Julie.” You know, I don’t think vegetables are all that bad after all.”
“Good to hear,” said Christopher. “Keep eating your veggies.”
