The Right Bride

Short Story - The Right Bride

A young shepherd knew three girls who were so beautiful that he did not know which one to marry.

So he asked his mother for advice.

‘Invite them to dinner,’ she said, and “watch how they cut the cheese.”

So he did.

The first girl ate the cheese with the rind still on.

The second girl cut the rind, but she also cut off a good deal of edible cheese with it.

The third girl took off exactly the right amount of rind and left all the edible cheese.

‘Marry her,’ said the mother, with certainty.
