WARNING!!!! Keep them AWAY from the Thesaurus or they Will Try to Mess With You

“What’s the difference, teacher?”

“Well, some animals can’t ‘amble’. A snake, for instance, or an ant. It’s a kind of walking that’s slow and loose and hasn’t got any destination, necessarily. Some animals often amble — like a giraffe, a horse, a cow. A sheep could, but probably doesn’t.”

“Why snake can’t amble?”

“C’mon Rahim, that’s just silly. You can figure that out.”

“Rahim, a snake can’t walk,” whispers helpful Korean girl.

“Oh, right. My bad! But ant can walk. Why can’t ant amble?”

“It’s not their nature. They have these little short legs, they move very fast all the time and they always have a reason to go somewhere.”

“That’s true, teacher. Can you amble?”

  1. Ambling is a way of life but you only really discover it after the first 50 years and it ambles upon you without warning. Suddenly it is there, so let’s all amble on together.

    • That’s true. It’s all my dog, Bear, has known and she thinks that’s how you go for a walk. You walk, you stop, you smell things, you lean against your person while she looks off into the distance. She actually thinks that’s us going out to play. In a way it’s sad, but she’s very happy. 🙂
