Billy The Goat - Famous Minatan Folk Tale (English Version)Billy The Goat
Once upon a time, a farmer was raising their animals. He gave food to the cows, the horses, pigs, chickens, and a handful of more. While he was cleaning up the pigs, he noticed a goat wandering around with the chickens. He did not have any goats yet, so he checked on the goat. He made sure it was wild, there was no nametag so surely it was random. He gave the goat a name. Billy the goat! Billy was a grayish-black goat, decently smart, and obeys the farmer.
Until one day...
The farmer woke up like any other day, he did his chores. He fed the cows, the horses, pigs, chickens, and a handful of more. He then went to find Billy, but he was gone. He's not in his fenced yard and left no trace. So he went out of the farm. He went all across town, but he did not find a goat, or Billy, anywhere! The farmer was disappointed. He loved goats.
Until then... he never found Billy.
Until one day...
The farmer woke up like any other day, he did his chores. He fed the cows, the horses, pigs, chickens, and a handful of more. But then his phone rang. *ring ring* He answered the cell phone. "Sir, I found a sheep in my backyard, nametag Billy and has your phone number on the tag, please come to (this address) to come to get Billy!" The farmer went.
"Yes, I am here to get my goat back, Billy." "Here he is." "But this is a sheep..." "Yes, a sheep, right?" "No, he is a goat." "You may have heard wrong in my phone call," "I said, SHEEP"
"I am sorry ma'am, I am trying to get my goat back he has been missing for a month now." "I think I may know a goat around here" "Yes, please tell me more about it." (Conversation goes on).
"Hello, where is my goat?" "Here it is!" "But this is a frog ma'am." "Wake up to reality" "What..?" "Wake up, get off the headset." "What do you mean, this is life." "Get off it right now" it sudden realization, he takes off the VR headset. He looks around his real farm. here's nothing but ripped hay.
He never had a farm. Or Billy.
