363. the tyger and the tortoise

the tyger raced through the forest with the tortoise on his back. together, they looked for mrs tortoise.

slow down!” the tortoise said.

“if i go any slower,” the tyger said, “we won’t be able to cover the entire forest.”

if you don’t go slower,” the tortoise replied, “we won’t be able to see her regardless.”

“what if we split up?” the tyger suggested.

that’s a great idea!” the tortoise replied.

so he crawled off the tyger’s back and looked around. “where are we?” he asked.

the tyger said, “that’s for you to figure out,” and he fled into the shadows.
