The Boasting Traveler
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     "That was the best trip ever!" the traveler declared. People turned to look at him.
 
2     In the village of Marsden, it was uncommon for anyone to leave for an extended period of time. Certainly, people didn't go gallivanting across Europe for fun. However, that is exactly what Travis Runion had done. Now he was home to tell everyone all about his adventures.
 
3     "Where did you go?" a boy in a blue shirt and jeans asked.
 
4     "Where didn't I go? That's the question," Travis replied with a wink.
 
5     "Have you been to Spain?" a woman with short gray hair asked.
 
6     "Of course!" replied Travis with a shrug. "I ran with the bulls there. I outran the bulls and everyone else!"
 
7     "Did you go to France?" a young man in a suit with a newspaper under his arm inquired.
 
8     "Ah, yes, France was magnifique," bragged Travis. "I learned to paint with a master. People said that my painting was better than anything he had ever done!" He shook his head. "I should have kept it, but I was offered a large sum of money for it. Selling it seemed like the right thing to do at the time."
