The First and the Last
When George is thirty-five, he buys a small plane and learns to fly it. He soon becomes very good and makes his plane to do all kinds of tricks.
George has a friend. His name is Mark. One day George offers to take Mark up in his plane. Mark thinks, "I know how to travel in a big plane,but I do not know how is it in a small one, so I'll go."
They go up, and George fllows around for half an hour and does all kinds of tricks in the air.
When they come down, Mark is very glad to be back safely, and he says to his friend in a shaking voice, "Well, George, thank you very much for those two trips in your plane."
George was very surprised and said, "Two trips?"
"Yes, my first and my last," answers Mark.
