Ooh! said Ulf.

When he got home, he said, I have learned something wondrous!

What have you learned?

I know what I know.

A few days later, his wife said, We need fish for our dinner. Will you go buy some?

Why fetch what will soon arrive? said Ulf. He brought her outside, then he jumped in the well. Splash!

Help! cried Ulf, who couldnt swim.

His wife quickly lowered the bucket. Ulf grabbed the rope and climbed out, then sat dripping and shivering on the ground.

Husband, why in the world did you jump in the well?

Never mind! said Ulf. I know what I know!

Well, of course you do, silly! But what do you know?

Ulf thought about it.

I know . . . . I know . . . . I know . . . . NOTHING!
