A passer-by told him, "Your boots aren't a pair."

Hearing this he hurried home to change boots. But when he got home and saw the other boots, he thought for a moment and said,"There's no need to change. These other two are not a pair either. One is thick and the other thin."

"This is the word 'one' I taught you to read yesterday, now isn't it?" said the scholar.

"Oh! But how big it has become overnight!" said the boy in surprise.
