Tortoise, that famously slow character of fable fame, is notorious for taking his time. He’ll get there on time — even if he leaves three days early for a party across town.

He thought back to that fateful day when he and his friend Hare decided to race each other. Hare had always been a bit arrogant. And that arrogance played a role in Hare’s loss that day, because…to Hare’s shock…Tortoise won!

Tortoise, to his credit, didn’t make a big stink. He just took his win, smiled, and bought his friend Hare dinner.

Anyhow, enjoy your journey — even if sometimes you’re in a rush.
