Hare: It’s not fair

“You know, I have won countless races. Sprints and marathons. But every interview they always need to go back and ask me about this one race with Tortoise. How I felt after? What I would do differently? I’m so tired of these questions.”

(sigh)

“And you know what. After our race, Tortoise never offered me a rematch. In fact, he never raced again, ever. And every interview they still ask him questions about this one race! About his genius plan. About his healthy food habits. About his strength of character.”

“It’s not fair.”

Ah! A finish, a clear goal! The first secret of success! And what was your strategy?

Uhm. To walk. Uhm. I just kept on walking.

Brilliant! Fantastic!

To be a top performer like you, you must have great health. What is your diet like?

I eat greens.

The mail: pure magic

‘I love you.’

I got up and walked to the post office.

One moment I hesitated. Then, a leap of faith: I dropped the letter in the mail container. It disappeared.

I believe that it will reappear. In a city, 2500km from here. In the mailbox of an apartment.

She will find it. She will open it. She will read my words.

Pure magic.
