A man is driving down the road and breaks down near a monastery.

He goes to the monastery, knocks on the door, and says, My car broke down.
Do you think I could stay the night?

the monks graciously accept him, feed him dinner, even fix his carπŸ”§.

As the man tries to fall asleep, he hears a strange soundπŸ’¬.

The next morning, he asks the monks what the sound was, but they say,

We can't tell you. You're not a monk.

The man is disappointed but thanks them anyway and goes about his merry way.

Some years later,

The same man breaks down in front of the same monastery.

The monks again accept him, feed him, even fix his carπŸ”§.

That night, he hears the same strange noise πŸ’¬that he had heard years earlier.

The next morning🌞, he asks what it is, but the monks reply, We can't tell you😢. You're not a monk.

The man says, All right, all right. I'm dying to know.

If the only way I can find out what that sound was is to become a monk, how do I become a monk?

The monks reply, You must travel the earth 🌍and tell us how many blades of grass there are and the exact number of sand pebbles When you find these numbers,

you will become a monk.

The man sets about his task.

Some 4⃣5⃣ years later, he returns and knocks on the door of the monastery.

He says,

I have traveled the earth🌍 and have found what you have asked for. There are

145,236,284,232 blades of grass and

231,281,219,999,129,382 sand pebbles on the earth🌏.

The monks reply, Congratulations. You are now a monkπŸ˜‡.

We shall now show you the way to the sound.

The monks lead the man to a wooden doorπŸšͺ where the head monk says,

The sound is right behind that door.

The man reaches for the knob, but the door is locked.

He says, Real funny. May I have the key?

The monks give him the key, and he opens the door.

Behind the wooden door is another door made of stoneπŸšͺ.

The man demands the key to the stone door.

The monks give him the key, and he opens it, only to find a door πŸšͺmade of ruby.

He demands another key from the monks, who provide it.

Behind that door is another doorπŸšͺ, this one made of sapphire,

So it went until the man had gone through doors of emerald,

silver,

topaz,

and amethyst.

Finally, the monks say, This is the last key to the last door.

The man is relieved to know end.

He unlocks the door,

turns the knob,

and behind that door he is amazed to find the source of that strange sound

. . . .

. . . .

😐😢But he can't tell you what it is because you're not

a monk
