the winter fool

Tostoy once told the story of the summer fool and the winter fool. A summer fool knocks on your door and you open it and right away you know he is a fool.
A winter fool knocks on your door and you open it and he steps inside, takes off his tall fur hat, shakes the snow from it and sets it aside. Then he removes his greatcoat and gives it a mighty shake and hangs it up on a peg. He sits and patiently takes off his heavy boots and places them under the coat. Then he walks over to the fire and rubs his hands together, warming them. Finally, he turns and faces you and only then do you see that he is a fool.
