He stood on the street corner; and begged for money, for food and anything else. Using every skill he had, he tried to get a rise from each passerby.
“Hello, I offer my services for a dollar. I can sing a song, I can do a trick and I can give a great thai massage Cardiff!”, said the poor fellow that was probably homeless and hungry.
Each person who passed by pulled themselves away from the man and kept walking. The man dropped his head defeated.
In a moment, just a moment, a strange sound wafted up from the man’s hat, in which he used to catch money from the general public. He looked down and saw his hat full of money, dollars, quarters and the like. He smiled and looked up.
A strange little man stood in front of him and he spoke. “I want you to do a trick for me”.
The homeless man smiled and spoke. “Yes sir, anything! What would you have me do?”
The strange little man smiled and waved his hand, then he spoke. “I want you to drop dead.”
The homeless man clutched his chest and fell breathless to the ground.
