93. to be a fish

the tortoise wanted to know what it was like to be a fish, so he dove into the lake and began to swim. however, he did not have flippers, so he began to sink, and he did not have gills, so he began to drown.

at the last possible moment, he saw a worm, dangling from a hook. he freed the worm and tugged on the hook. the hook shot up through the waters, and the tortoise went with it. he burst out of the surface of the lake and landed in the fisherman’s boat.

the fisherman was angry, and he threw the tortoise as hard as he could. the tortoise landed on the shore of the lake.

“so that’s what it’s like to be a fish,” he thought.
