The proud mango

Once upon a time there was a mango tree who grew a mango who  was very proud of himself. The mango’s only problem was that he grew next to an ugly almond tree with ugly almonds.

So every day, the mango would insult the almond seeds on his looks and their taste. All the other plants tried to make the mango stop harassing the almond but he never listened.

One summer, well dried up. The sun was scorching and the heat was merciless. It went on for days and the mangoes got bad.

It was there to bloom but due to excessive heat they ripened up too quickly and fell from the tree. The almond seeds held just fine and survived.

Moral: Do not judge someone by the way they look.
