  • 3. One of the potshad a crack in itwhile the otherpot was perfectand alwaysdelivered a fullportion of water.
  • 4. At the end of thelong walk fromthe stream to thehouse, thecracked potarrived only halffull.
  • 5. For a full two years this went ondaily, with the woman bringinghome only one and a half pots ofwater.
  • 6. Of course, theperfect pot was proudof its accomplishments.
