Spacy is coming back from town. He is in a very bad mood. A car driver passed by. He was driving without paying attention to a big puddle. Spacy became totally wet. The car driver didn’t stop to apologise for his accident. In the bakery one person pushed to the front. And on the way home, the bus driver closed the doors right in front of Spacy’s nose and started driving. Because of all this, Spacy is very angry. “What happened?“ Sparky asks. “Don’t bother me!“ Spacy answers. He goes to his room and slams the door. “Oh my goodness!“ Sparky sighs
After a while Spacy feels sorry for his behaviour. He explains everything to Sparky. “You have to find a way to reduce your anger!“ Sparky says. “You are right!“ Spacy replies. He surfs the Internet.
Two days later Spacy receives a big parcel. He goes to his room and does some handicrafts. Then he calls for Sparky. “Look what I have! When I’m angry now, I will box for a while!“ Spacy smiles. Sparky starts laughing. In the middle of the room hangs a big sandbag and Spacy is wearing boxing gloves.
