I like to tref… There, at last, I’ve said it. Truth is, I’m a bit of a trefologist, and I follow trefology because I am interested in learning about life.
If you haven’t yet treffed then I wholeheartedly recommend you do. To find out more about the wonderful world of trefology, get yourself over to fellow WP blog site trefology and follow the fun. You won’t regret it.
An ant story
I wanted to capture ants
Not just any ants, but special ants who wear velvet slippers
So I sprinkled sugar over my terrace to act as bait
And soon a colony of ants in velvet slippers arrived to feast
But then came anteaters in moccasins, who gobbled up the ants
Followed by coyotes in ballet shoes, who ate the anteaters
Followed then by mountain lions in hiking boots, who ate the coyotes
Followed by pandas in clogs from Amsterdam, who ate the mountain lions
By evening my terrace resembled some apocalyptic wasteland of bones and shoes, and I was forced to call the police on the surviving pandas, who were staring at me hungrily
When the police finally came, they ate the pandas, plus their clogs, plus all the other shoes left on my terrace, and then they promptly left, complaining of indigestion
Which is a rookie detective mistake to make – eating such a tough meal as all that while responding to an incident…
So, I dedicate my new book to those hungry police officers: Eats pandas, shoes, and leaves.
If the Very Hungry Caterpillar had been gobbled up by a tree snake at the beginning of its quest to eat, then thousands upon thousands of books might have been spared from the indignity of being sold with holes in their pages.
