Next morning…. The instructor said
“Today we jump in the water.” “Wait, my parents didn’t learn to swim. I don’t like to get wet! I like to drop this course!” “You can’t drop it for the drop period is over!”
“Either you jump or you
flunk” The rabbit jumped in. He went down twice and bubbles came up. The instructor saw he was drowning and pull him out. All the animals were laughing. The rabbit was more humiliated that he had ever been in his life.
At home… His parents said
“You have to get a diploma or other rabbits are going to get ahead of you.” I don’t like school… I just want to be free….
At school at the counselor's
office… The rabbit told the counselor that he doesn’t want to go to school anymore and the reasons behind it. “Rabbit, I tell you you’re good at running. I don’t know why you need to work on it…”
…”what you need to work
on is swimming. I’ll arrange it so you can have two periods of swimming…” When the rabbit heard that, he just threw up!
The rabbit was inspired… “When
I graduated.. I will start a business where rabbits would do nothing but run, the squirrels could just climb trees, and the fish could swim.” “Oh, what a great place that would be!”
