The Town Mouse

 
A poor country mouse invited his friend, a town mouse, to his home for dinner. The town mouse arrived all dressed up. As he looked around the countryside, he muttered to himself, "What a different place this is! There are neither carriages nor stores. I see nothing but old-looking houses and fields."
He was then led into a hut. Sweet corn, peas, barley and small pieces of cheese were placed in front of the guest who was grumbling with disgust.
"Please help yourself, though it's not much of a meal," said the country mouse.
Taking a bite of barley, the town mouse said to the host mouse, "How can you stand living on such poor food? Why don't you visit me in my town house. I will treat you to a big feast."
