How Many Smurfs Are There in Total
Once upon a time Vincenzino. He had a friend named Gelsomino, a big brother named Pallino and a big sister named Asietta.
Every morning, before to go to school, the mom had for Vincenzino a delicious chocolate snack.
Every time, taking the snack, Vincenzino used to give a kiss to mom before to go to school with Gelsomino.
One day – a special day – the mom didn’t give the chocolate snack to Vincenzino. But she invited him to open the door and go outside to the garden.
When Vincenzino went outside and saw what was there, he opened the mouth and stopped to move. Then, he took a deep breath and screamed of wonder for that unexpected surprise.
The garden was full of Smurfs.
So, he ran into the garden with the wonder printed on his face. Laughing and running he went to touch every Smurf with his hands.
He asked to himself:
“How many Smurfs are there in total?”
But more than this, Vincenzino saw a Smurf House.
During the night, Gelsomino and Pallino assembled together a Smurf house. It was big enough to let enter Vincenzino inside it to play and to feel like a real Smurf.
For a baby like Vincenzino, it was one of the best ways to begin a new day. He was happy and amazed at the surprise they had done to him.
Fill the Backpack with Smurfs before to go to school
It was the time to go to school. So, mom called him:
“Vincenzino! Vincenzino! Come here. You must go to school. Gelsomino is waiting for you.”
Vincenzino screamed annoyed:
“Yes, mom. Wait a minute. I am busy now! Uff!”
In that moment, Vincenzino was collecting Smurf to put in his backpack.
So he was saying to himself:
“I take the Brainy Smurf, then Papa Smurf. I like also Vanity Smurf and I want with me Chef Smurf.
How many Smurfs are there in total? They are too many. I will come back to take the others.
But wait. I bring to school also Grouchy Smurf and Clumsy Smurf. Yes!”
He was ready now. So he said:
“Mom, I am ready. I am coming.”
When he went to Gelsomino, he had the backpack stuffed with Smurfs and he held two more in his hands.
Into his backpack, he had Brainy Smurf, Papa Smurf, Vanity Smurf and Chef Smurf.
Instead, in his hands, he had Grouchy Smurf and Clumsy Smurf.
He showed to Gelsomino the two Smurfs he was holding in this hands. So he told him:
“Hi, Gelsomino. Do you know that you look like Grouchy Smurf today?”
Gelsomino had not slept enough that night just because of Smurfs. So when Vincenzino confronted him with Grouchy Smurf, he smiled. But later, with a serious face, he said:
“Let go to school.”
They walked. But Vincenzino forgot at home the chocolate snack to eat at school.
When he left home with Gelsomino, Mom screamed:
“Vincenzino! Vincenzino! The snack! You forgot the snack!”
But they were already far away. Mom was unable to stop them and she remained with a worried face.
Vincenzino was going to school having nothing to eat.
Never jump down from the sidewalk
Vincenzino and Gelsomino were walking to the school smiling and joking.
“Why are you carrying so many Smurfs to school?”
“I like the Smurfs. I want to show them to the teacher and play with my classmates. So, I want my friends to play with Smurfs. But, I do not want that girls play with my toys. The females no.”
“Why not”, asked Gelsomino.
“Because the girls are bad and they take my toys.”
So, Gelsomino laughed. But later he said:
“Let me tell you something about the girls.
If you treat them with respect, they will be kind to you and they will not take your toys.”
Vincenzino was holding with strength Grouchy Smurf and Clumsy Smurf. But he didn’t care of the street.
When it was time to get off the sidewalk and cross the road, Vincenzino jumped down on street. This unexpected action scared Gelsomino.
A blue car was running at full speed at that moment. Gelsomino was fast enough to take Vincenzino for an arm and pulled him back.
Gelsomino got angry.
“Don’t do it anymore”, he said with animosity.
“It is very dangerous. You must stay close to me. You don’t have to go away. Don’t cross the road without me. OK?”
So, come on. Stay close to me. Now we cross the road together.”
Vincenzino was a bit disoriented and scared in that moment.
So, Gelsomino took him by an arm and crossed the street.
Vincenzo arrived at the entrance of the school healthy and safe.
He gave a big hug to Gelsomino and entered to School.
Show Smurfs to Classmates
Gelsomino went to work. Instead, Vincenzino went to show to his teacher the Smurfs he was holding in his hands.
Smiling, he said:
“Hi, Teacher. Look what I have today!”
“Hi, Vincenzino. You have Smurfs. How beautiful these smurfs are! Show them to others.”
So, Vincenzino went to show the two Smurfs he had on his hands to his classmates.
He put them on the table and said to his classmates:
“Wait, I have other Smurfs.”
A baby asked:
“How many Smurfs are there in total?”
Vincenzino opened his backpack and pulled out the other four Smurfs.
So, in total there were six Smurfs.
The kids were all around the school bench to see what Vincenzino was doing.
He put all the smurfs in line on the bench and started to name them:
“This is Brainy Smurf.
This is Papa Smurf and it is my favorite Smurf.
You see also Vanity Smurf and Chef Smurf.
To finish I have Grouchy Smurf and Clumsy Smurf.”
Another baby asked:
“Vincenzino, where did you get them?”
So, Vincenzino said to everybody:
“This morning my mom told me to go outside. In the garden, there were a lot of Smurfs. There was even a Smurf House and I went inside it. It was fantastic. Eheheheheheh”
Another baby asked:
“Do you have the Farmer Smurf and the Hefty Smurf?
Do you have Gargamel?”
“Yes. I have many Smurfs. But I didn’t see Gargamel.”
All the babies had the mouth opened because they loved the Smurfs Toys.
Every baby is a fan of Smurfs. Babies would even live in the Smurfs Village and eat Smurfberries.
The Jealousy of Classmates
Vincenzino’s Smurfs were beautiful little plush puppets. His classmates loved them so much.
He and the other babies spent the morning playing with the Smurfs and the Toys in the room.
For all the time, Vincenzino had always in his hand one Smurf jumping and running up and down the room.
It was like a party where everyone was playing sharing happy moments.
But, some babies were sad. This happened because they had no Smurf. Instead, Vincenzino received many Smurfs as a gift. Why?!
A baby said to himself:
“Does his mom love him more than my mother loves me.”
“Is his mom so rich to buy a ton of toys to him?
How many smurfs are there in total in his room? 10 smurfs? 20 Smurfs? 100 Smurfs?”
These questions were a proof of jealousy.
They were jealous and they were feeling sad.
Babies were playing together until a jealous boy caught the Grouchy Smurf, saying that it was his smurf.
Vincenzino got angry. So, he ran to the baby and pulled his hairs. Then, Vincenzino took back his Grouchy Smurf saying:
“You don’t take my Smurf. It is mine. Ugly! Bad! Brat!”
The baby started to cry. Then the teacher had to resolve the issue.
The teacher separated them and she tried to calm them.
But later, even though they had a fight, they returned to play together. This was a positive thing.
Moving all Smurfs into the Vincenzino’s room
While Vincenzino was in school, Pallino went back to home.
Mom said that all those Smurfs could not stay in the garden. So she and Pallino gathered all Smurfs and put them into the room of Vincenzino.
The Smurfs were so many that mom had to put them everywhere in the room.
Vincenzino and Assietta used both that room. So, the mom put the Smurf to the bed of Vincenzino and to the bed of Asietta. But this was not enough. The Smurfs were too many.
So mom had to put Smurfs on the shelves, on the desk, on the chairs. There were so many Smurfs on the floor too.
Smurfs were filling the whole room.
Seeing so many Smurfs everywhere, even mom asked to herself:
“How many Smurfs are there in total in the room?”
Mom thought that Vincenzino would go crazy with joy seeing all those Smurfs in her room. So, she smiled thinking about it.
Asia was in school. So she didn’t know that her bed was hosting many smurfs. But Mom was sure even she would have jumped with joy seeing the Smurfs on her bed.
Mom had to cook lunch.
You may not know it, but the mom of Vincenzino was a good cook.
She had the brilliant idea to cook a delicious Strawberry Tart.
Pallino used to love Mom’s desserts. So, he would not miss the opportunity to eat a delicious homemade tart.
The Generosity of Classmates
In school, it was the time to eat the snack. So babies stopped playing and went to sit in their school benches. They pulled their snacks out of their backpacks.
But Vincenzino had nothing to eat. He realized that he had forgotten at home the chocolate snack of his mom.
In that moment, Vincenzino felt alone. He said nothing. But after a moment, he began to cry in silence. He desired to disappear.
The teacher was eating crackers during the break. She looked up at the babies and she saw that they were eating and chatting.
Nobody saw Vincenzino cry. But the teacher gave a better look to her pupils and she realized that there was a problem. She got up and went to Vincenzino.
So, she asked:
“Vincenzino, don’t you eat?”
Vincenzino lifted his head. He was holding back the tears.
“Teacher”, he said.
“I forgot the snack at home. I have nothing to eat.”
Vincenzino was no longer able to withhold tears.
The Teacher said:
“Don’t cry Vincenzino. It is nothing. We will give you some of our food.”
So, the Teacher asked the other babies to give something to Vincenzino. So, that he can eat with them.
Some babies got up from the chairs and gave him some of their food.
Vincenzino was experiencing a very sad moment and he was very embarrassed. But he was glad to receive food from his classmates.
His eyes stopped to cry. His face started to smile.
He was eating together with his classmates before to come back to play for the rest of the morning.
It was no longer important how many smurfs were there in total, to play with the other babies.
Grab a Smurf and bring it home
Vincenzino passed from sadness to joy by the generosity of his classmates. Such generosity made him very happy.
He was able to eat fruits, snacks, and bread because the teacher asked help to classmates. That was a very special moment.
So before leaving school, Vincenzino launched his Smurfs to his classmates saying:
“I give you my Smurfs. Take them.”
Vincenzino was a little baby. So, he did not realize what this act was going to cause.
From that moment, almost every baby started running and jumping. Some of them got up from the chairs to take the Smurfs. Others, however, jumped on the school benches.
Every baby wanted to bring home a Smurf. But Smurfs were not enough for everybody. So, there were fights.
Vincenzino gave away his Smurfs but he kept Papa Smurf.
His classmates fought for Vanity Smurf, Chef Smurf, Grouchy Smurf, Clumsy Smurf and Brainy Smurf.
But when a baby tried to take Papa Smurf, Vicenzino had to protect his favorite Smurf.
So, he screamed at the baby:
“Hey! This is mine. Stop! Don’t touch it!”
In this bustle, the teacher was reaching the desperation. But something saved her. The school day was going to finish. So, the bell rang.
Babies came out of the classroom. So, they ran to their parents which were waiting for them at the school entrance.
Gelsomino out of School
Gelsomino was already there, waiting to carry home Vincenzino. He saw some babies with Smurfs in their hands which were going away with their parents.
So, he had understood that something had happened during school hours.
Vincenzino ran to him having in his hand Papa Smurf.
Gelsomino said to him:
“Hi. How are you? Why your classmate have your Smurfs?”
“I forgot the chocolate snack at home.”, Vincenzino said.
“I gave them the Smurfs because they gave me some of their snacks.”
“They were so generous to divide their food with you. They made a noble action.” Gelsomino said.
“So you gave them your Smurfs for Gratitude. Making so, you did a good thing.”
Vincenzino was no longer worried about the classmates and the Smurfs he gave away. He was ready to go home to play with the other Smurfs.
Gelsomino took Vincenzino for one hand and both went home.
Playing with Smurfs before Lunch
Mom was waiting for his little boy. She cooked Pasta with Ragout and the delicious Strawberries Tart.
Asietta was already at home and she found a mountain of Smurfs in her room. For the surprise and the astonishment, she had the mouth open.
Her first expression was:
But after a moment, calling mom, her words were:
I tell you now.
I will not pick up the Smurfs.”
Pallino who was outside the room said to her:
“Don’t worry Asietta. We know you don’t pick up anything.”
As a response, Asietta launched him a Smurf on the face and both laughed:
Mom was setting up the table when Gelsomino and Vincenzino arrived at home.
When Vincenzino came in, he told her about what happened at school:
“Hi, Mom. I forgot the chocolate snack today. But the other babies gave me something to eat.”
“Yes, I know, dear. But your classmates have been good kids.
Are you hungry? I cooked Pasta with Ragout and a Strawberries Tart.”
Mom invited Gelsomino for Lunch. He was happy to accept the invite.
Vincenzino wanted to see his Smurfs but there was no Smurf in the garden. So he asked:
“Mom, where are my Smurfs?”
So, Mom invited Vincenzino to go in his room.
When he opened the door of his room, he saw his bed covered with Smurf. But the Smurfs were also on the chairs, on the bed of Asia and elsewhere.
The whole room looked like the Smurfs’ room.
Asia was with him at that time. They entered the room and made a leap on their beds, disappearing among the Smurfs.
He and Asia were having a lot of fun. They jumped onto their beds throwing the Smurfs.
Instead of playing the pillows’ war they played at the Smurfs’ war.
Pasta with Ragout and Strawberry Tart for Lunch
Vincenzino and Asietta continued to jump on beds. They played the Smurfs’ war as long as Mom did not call them for lunch.
When Mom called them, they left the room and Vincenzino carried a Smurf with him.
They sit around the table with Mom, Pallino, and Gelsomino.
“Hi, Vincenzino, who is that Smurf?”
“It is my friend, the Hefty Smurf”, Vincenzino said.
“We are here to eat the Tart. Ahahahah!”
In saying those things, Vincenzino was so funny that everyone laughed.
But later, Gelsomino wished everybody:
From that moment, everybody was intent on enjoying the Pasta with Ragout that mom had cooked.
But when it came time to sliced the Strawberry Tart, Asietta, smiling, said to Vincenzino:
“Hey, here a slice of your Smurfberries Tart.”
Everyone started to laugh, while Vincenzino answered his sister saying:
“Do you know that Smurfberries are worth a lot of money and they are delicious?”
“Come on Vincenzino. Stop to talk and eat your tart.”
So, Vincenzino put Hefty Smurf in a corner of the chair and began to eat. The Strawberry Tart that Mom had prepared with such love was a goodness.
It was so good that Vincenzino had all the face dirty of strawberry jam. In fact, he had his whole face painted with jam.
But Mom was not happy about this and screamed:
“What are you doing?!
Please, be careful. Don’t dirty your clothes.”
But there was no way to stop him.
At the end, Vincenzino had a lot of jam spread over the t-shirt, as well as on hands and face.
He loved the Strawberry Tart.
Hefty Smurf all dirty with Jam
Gelsomino appreciated the Strawberry Tart and he asked the recipe. So, the mom of Vincenzino started to explain about the making of the tart. She described also how she used some secret ingredients to make it so delicious.
But, nobody noticed that the Hefty Smurf was dirty with jam.
Vincenzino, eating his slice of tart, often dropped the jam on his chair. The jam also fell on the Smurf.
When Vincenzino went to take his Smurf from the chair, he saw that it was dirty like his face. So, he began to cry.
“Sigh… It is dirty with jam.”
“Sigh… Mom! Look at it.”
“Don’t worry Vincenzino”, Mom said.
“I will wash it in the washing machine.”
“How many Smurfs are there in total? They are many, right?”
“So, don’t be sad. You can play with all the others.”
“Mom will wash the dirty one.”
Asietta didn’t care much about the tears of Vincenzino. In that moment, she had the smart idea. She took the dish and got up in the chair. Then, with the fingers, she slipped into the dish another big slice of tart.
So, while Vincenzino was crying for the jam on the Hefty Smurf, she continued to eat. She was tasting with joy the second slice of Strawberry Tart.
With a slice of tart, a Smurf dirty of jam and some tears poured, everybody has a good time together. They were happy and they love to eat together. There was always a lot of fun with Vincenzino and his brothers.
Gelsomino was not a member of the family. He was a family friend, but he was loved and respected as a few.
Vincenzino has learned an important lesson:
When eating, be careful to don’t get dirty.
Beyond all adventures and vicissitudes, the Strawberry Tart was a wonderful delight.
But one thing has remained unresolved:
How many Smurfs are there in total in the Vincenzino’s Room?
Nobody knows it.
It is almost a mystery, as it could also be a secret that no one wants to unveil.
You can have a Strawberry Tart so as you can have a room full of Smurfs. But the family is the most precious thing you have.
