Ruth went bird-watching by the lake. In the afternoon she bumped into the Gingerbread man out walking.
He invited her for an afternoon picnic of porridge.
“Yuck” said Ruth “This porridge is disgusting”.
The Gingerbread man sulked and cried a bit. Ruth gave him a tissue and said “Keep smiling and be happy and make a better picnic – like, maybe chicken and pickle sandwiches, chocolate fudge cake, flap jack, liquorice allsorts, scotch eggs, chicken drumsticks, cocktail sausages, cheese and pineapple on a stick, Pringles and pumpkin soup?”
The Gingerbread man said “Ok Ruth, next time I will try”.
They all went bird-watching together and Ruth made sure that no birds ate the Gingerbread man.
