I wonder how they talk...


Another usual weekend morning in the family. The Sun was cooking breakfast, while her children were in the family room.


Mercury, Venus, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto were noisily playing scrabble.

Mars was doing his school homework and get confused about something, so he asked, "Earth why is it your lands are more fertile than mine?"

Earth stopped her knitting and lifted her shoulder. "I don't know, Mars," was her only reply.

Scratching his head, Mars asked another question, this time to Jupiter. "Jupiter, are you married? Neptune and Saturn are they married too?"

"Neptune, Saturn and I are not married, why do you ask?" Jupiter patiently replied to his younger brother while reading his book. Saturn, smiling, lifted her head up to look at Mars and then back down at her drawings.

"Because Saturn and Neptune have rings." Mars was now even more confused than earlier.

The scrabble players were now heatedly arguing with each other.

"You're cheating!" Pluto accused Mercury

"No, I'm not cheating!" Mercury defensively replied. "You, just can't accept the word adopted, because it is you!" teased his brother.

"Kids, enough of that! Breakfast is ready!" their mother called.

They all lined up and behave properly.
