Concerning the Talking Rock
Yesterday I was going along the beach when I moved with a false step on top of a rock with the ability to talk.
I moved the talking rock up into my hand, and said to him, "Are you a talking rock?"
The talking rock said to me: "Yes I am a talking rock."
I asked the talking rock, "Why didn't you say something about the path?"
He replied to me: "Because I am a mean talking rock!"
The reply of the talking rock made me angry so I moved it into the ocean with force.
I have never seen the talking rock again at all.
