Potato, Two Potato
How would you feel if you were old and had to share everything with your husband or wife? Together you have only one chair, one raggedy old coat, one blanket full of holes, and only one potato a day? Under your dilapated mattress you have saved only one gold coin, in case of emergency.
Then, what would you think if your husband or wife found a big black pot buried in your potato patch? Would you try it out? Would you put your ONE potato in it? If you did, would you be surprised to discover that the pot was a magic pot that magically transformed everything that went into it? The pot doubles everything that goes into it. Everything! What would you put into it?
Well, I'll bet you couldn't even guess what fell into the pot one day!
I'm thinking that you are about to discover that there is a big difference in what you WANT and what you NEED! It's a magical tale with a doubly surprising ending!
