And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. But then a huge Wave of the Sea came crashing in and destroyed the house, carrying the man out to sea, where he bobbed uncertainly for a while. Until he learned how to swim.
