Magnifico would quietly think a small while, before he answered:
“But I really do try! It’s just that my eyes won’t open earlier. But really, I try very hard and put all I have into it, but, somehow, I just don’t wake up any earlier”.

“But of course, that’s what happens to lazy boys, their eyes just don´t to let go of a little more sleep. But with time, it may be that you outgrow it and become a serious person. And then you might get out of that bed at a good time and early in the morning”, he would reply joking, for in reality he felt very proud of his son and of how he worked always in a good mood at all the chores on the farm.
