Mr. Stupid Mad

"Once upon a time, there was a boy named Mike. He lives in a city with his parents. His father works for the National Geography as the photographer, because of his job, he has to travel around the world a lot. Since Mike was to small before to travel, his mom usually stay with him at home when his Dad is working in another country.

Mike is 5 years old now and he goes to Kindergarden near his home. He made many new friends. Mike is a funny boy and his friends like him, until one time when ever his friends do not do what he asked them to do or maybe when Mike doesn't misunderstand them, he likes to say that they are stupid. In fact, he uses the word stupid a lot!

His friends, Mrs. Linda Mike's teacher , and even his parents trying to tell him that it is not nice to say stupid to other people, and it always hurts their feeling too, but Mike did not listen. Slowly, one by one his friends stop playing with him.

Suddenly, Mike's father get an assignment from his office to take pictures of the native people in a far away country. This time Mike and his Mom are going with his Dad because now Mike is old enough to go with his Dad. He is soooo excited!

When they arrived in their temporary home in that far away country, Mike directly went to find other children to play with. Even though those children speak different language than him and they do not understand each other, somehow they manage to play together. They climb the tree together, they jump to the river and catch some frogs together. Mike really has a blast with his new friends.

Well.. until he start calling them stupid when they don't understand what Mike says or when Mike doesn't understand why his friends do certain thing. In fact Mike doesn't understand a lot of thing that his friends do because all his life, Mike lives in the city, he never experience living in the jungle before like his new friends. But... like he always does, when ever he misunderstand something, he always says that the other person is the stupid one.

While in the city, his old friends really start not to like him because he kept saying the word stupid. His new friends do not understand at all what the word stupid means! All they know is that Mike always says "Stupid!" a lot! So they thought Mike's name is Stupid! So now they start calling Mike... Stupid.

Ohh... how that Stupid name makes Mike so mad! He kept telling them to stop calling him stupid because it makes him mad, but the more he tells them to stop the more they call him stupid. In fact, they all thought that his last name is Mad ! Now Mike becomes Mr. Stupid Mad, and he can not stop them!

All of this really makes Mike sooo mad but he still wants to be with his new friends because they are fun to be with. So he wanders by himself until he found a nice spot near the river. He sat there and start to think of how mad he feels when his new friends call him Stupid Mad. He start to realize that it really hurts his feeling when he is being called stupid. Then he remember how his old friends, his teacher, and his parents are all trying to stop him from saying the word "stupid" again and again but he never listen. So he promise himself to stop telling other people stupid from now on.

It was hard, but Mike really stop himself from saying the word stupid. Even when his new friends keep calling him Stupid Mad, he just laugh it off. Until a couple of weeks later, all of a sudden he realize that they never call him Stupid Mad anymore. They call him Mike.

When his Dad finish his photo assignment in that far away country, they return back to their home in the city. Mike goes back to his school and he meets his old friends. He miss them and they miss him too, but now Mike knows that if he wants to keep his friends, he better stop calling them stupid"
