Urgh’s invention

Write a piece of fiction describing the incident that gave rise to the phrase, “third time’s the charm.”

Urgh was very tired of carrying heavy weights from one place to another dragging them with a wooden platform and ropes, when he stepped in a cylindrical stone, his big right foot slipped and he fell down with din. Arg! he said looking at the guilty stone. He got up very angry and continued pushing his load . suddenly he noticed that the platform passed easily over the round stone. Next time he was carrying a big load, Urgh took the same way and was careful not to stumble upon the same stone, but he was sure to make pass the platform over it and again he found it was much easier to push the weight because the stone was rolling beneath. He stopped took the stone and said: Uh?. Third time, Urgh went directly to the spot where the stone was and brought it home. His neighbours were laughing at him for carrying so much extra weight, but he didn’t care. He began to think hard and to go out to the mountain in search for bigger stones. Then he started carving the stones to make them perfectly round with a little hole in the middle. He just had invented the wheel. Like many others, he was a misunderstood genius. According to Wikipedia his invention wasn’t generalised until many millenniums later when other men invented the chariots with wooden wheels.
