Once upon a time there lived a girl named Catherine who was very stupid.
One day, she put some cakes in a basket to sell in the market. On the way, one of the cakes fell from her basket and rolled down the hill. Catherine thought, “Why should I bother going after it? I will send another cake to bring it back.” So she rolled down another cake. When the cakes didn’t return she rolled down a third cake to look for them. One by one, she rolled down all the cakes she had. Now her basket was empty. Catherine was annoyed and said, “If these cakes think I am going to waste time looking for them, they are wrong. I will go to the market alone and they will come on their own.` When Catherine reached the market, her husband was very angry to see the empty basket. Catherine said, “Don’t be angry, the cakes will come very soon.” The husband realised how foolish his wife was and cursed his luck.
