There was a man and his name was John. He was 30 years old at that time of my story.                       

I am sure, if COUCH POTETO or  MOUSE POTETO were professions, John would have had been one of the people with one of that kind of professions. John has lived in a big house. He has left the house very seldom. He wasn't that communicative, what means he wasn't a DEIPNOSOPHIST.



John has loved his big house with air condition inside and a TRANSOM outside.…
