Brief Annotation: This story is about an old man who is telling a story about a lesson he learned as a boy. When the old man was a boy he was a sheep keeper and did not enjoy and wanted the sheep to watch themselves. The boy’s job was to watch for the wolf to make sure a wolf would not eat a sheep. The boy decided to play  trick on the villagers screaming to them a wolf was trying to get the sheep, but when the villages got there, there was no wolf. The villagers were unhappy and did not think his joke was funny. He did it again, and the last time there really was a wolf and no one believed him.
