The Tortoise and the Bear

November 26, 2007

Orange Bear recently stopped by to check on his dear friend Mr. Crumpet’s progress regarding That Thing Unsaid, but which has been earlier referred to as that “Long Unfinished Project.”

Mr. Crumpet was found in agreeable spirits, especially as Milton Mole was charitably playing Sublime Classics like Puccini’s O Mio Babbino Caro.

“Here we go: Sublime Classics, Volume One,” sighed Orange Bear.

“Oh, Orange Bear, come to check on your dear old friend, have you?” asked Mr. Crumpet between moments of dreamy swaying.

“Well, it’s been eleven months since you buried yourself under your Long-Unfinished Project, and we were beginning to wonder if, you know, it seemed Less Unfinished — like a Lot Less Unfinished?”

“Yes.”

A corroborative nod from Milton Mole.

“Orange Bear, have you heard the story of the tortoise and the hare?”

“I take it you’re not the hare.”
