Marcus was tired from being at the picnic all day so he stretched out on the grass to rest.
He heard the men talking about horses and it got his attention.
Mr. Joe said, “my Chevrolet has 275 horses in it.” Mr. Rob said, “mine has 455 horses.” Mr. Thomas laughed and said, ” mine has 707 in my Dodge Challenger.”
Marcus couldn’t believe his ears. He ran to the parking lot to take a look at their cars, but there were no horses in the cars.
He walked away disappointed and went to tell his mother how the men lied.
At first, she laughed. Then, she told him she was sorry for laughing at him, and explained to him what the men actually meant.
