Penny wise, pound foolish

But the tale is not that simple. And as narrated by his mother, it is a cent- wise but not necessarily a dollar-foolish incident. At the annual day celebrations, the school had arranged many competitions and in one such competition, the prize was a goldfish. Aditya’s eyes were set on that prize. He wanted to bring a goldfish home. The game was simple. Throw a TT ball at a glass bowl from a distance and if it lands in the bowl, you can walk away with a goldfish. Aditya coaxed his mother to part with five dollars as entry fee for which he was given a set of 20 TT balls.
