There once was a man who always said, â€śThis is good.â€ť to everyone that happened to meet him. This positive man was a friend to a king and would often accompany him on the kingâ€™s hunting trips. He would load the guns, and the king would shoot them. One particular hunting trip he evidently, loaded one gun wrong, and when it went off, it shot the kingâ€™s thumb completely off. Examining the situation, the friend said as usual, â€śThis is good.â€ť Well, the king got mad and threw his friend in jail for the king could not see how this event was good.
