There were once three men marooned on a desert island. As time went by, they gradually ate up all their food, until at last they only had one thing left – a bread roll.

Now the three men agreed that whoever had the best dream that night would have the roll to eat the next day. So they all went to sleep and they all dreamt. And the next morning, they all met together to tell their dreams.

Allan said he’d had the most fantastic dream. « I was at a table completely covered with food – cakes, ices, sausages, biscuits, chips, everything you could think of.

And I could eat just as much as I liked. There were waiters who brought me anything I wanted. And there were two more who filled up my glass whenever it was empty. I’ve never eaten such delicious food in my life. It was terrific. »

And then it was Fred’s turn. He said he’d had the most fantastic dream too. « I was on a magic carpet, flying all over the world.
