The Hare and the Tortoise  

 

Wanna race? I bet you I’ll get there first!

You wanna bet you’ll arrive first? Are you serious?
You do realize I only have a few steps to take, right?

Yes, I bet you I’ll get there first!

Okay! Okay, if that’s what you want.

1, 2, 3. Are you coming?

I am coming! Coming! I am having fun with the dogs.

4, 5, 6. Are you coming? I am slowly hurrying.

I am coming! I am eating. This grass is delicious.

7, 8, 9. Are you coming? I see the finish line!

I am coming! I ate too much grass. I am sleeping. I am taking a little nap before running.

10, 11, 12. Are you coming? I am almost there.

I am coming! I am drinking. Always drink before a ... WOW! You ARE almost there! COMING!

The Hare shot off like a bolt, but it was in vain. The Tortoise got there first.

So? I was right! I was right. I won! I won! What good is your speed? And you don’t even carry a house!

Moral?

Slow and steady wins the race
