Anecdotes from the life of Pushkin

6
Puskhin liked to throw stones. No sooner than he caught sight of some stones, he would start throwing them. Sometimes he would get so worked up that he would stand there red all over, waving his arms, throwing stones a disgusting sight!

7
Pushkin had four sons, and all of them idiots. One was not even able to sit on his chair and kept on falling off. Puskhin himself was likewise not very good at sitting on his chair. Funny situations would arise. They would be sitting at table at one end Pushkin would keep falling off his chair, and at the other end his son. Such a laugh!
