One day a young mother was staying with her five-year-old son Suddenly he took her ball-pen and ate it.
"Oh, no! " cried the woman. "We must find a doctor.
She took her son, ran out of the house, put him in their car, and drove quickly to the nearest hospital. Taking her son by the hand, she rushed into the waiting room and shouted to the nurse. I must see the doctor at once.“
“ I'm sorry，" said the nurse quietly，“ But the doctor is busy.”
“ But nurse，" she cried，“ Please！ My son just ate my ball-pen！”
“well，” said the nurse，“ I'm terribly sorry, but you ll just have to use a pencil.
