One morning, as the family sat down for breakfast, a glass of orange juice accidentally tipped over. The wet liquid spread all over the table's surface. The table remained calm and just absorbed the spill without complaining.

In the afternoon, the table's owner, a little girl named Lily, used it as her study desk. She piled heavy books and notebooks on top of it. The table felt a bit burdened but stayed strong and supportive.

After school, Lily's younger brother, Max, decided to use the table as his canvas. With a mischievous smile, he drew colorful pictures all over it. The table didn't get upset; it understood that Max was just expressing his creativity.

During dinnertime, the table was crowded with plates, bowls, and forks. Excitedly, everyone talked and laughed. Accidentally, a fork fell on the table, leaving behind a small scratch. The table didn't mind; it knew it was just an accident.
