A boy went to town to sell a bull his father had given him. When he got there, his wagon broke down. The only way to communicate in this town was to send a telegram. The telegram cost a dollar per word and the boy only had one dollar. Now he needed a word to tell his father he was stranded without a ride and needed him to come get him and the bull. The boy chooses the word 'comfortable'. Why did he choose comfortable?
