Running Class “I can’t believe it. At school, I get to do what I do best!”
“Wait, wait! Swimming Class Rabbits don’t like to swim.”The instructor said “Well, you may not like it now but five years from now it was a good thing for you.”
Tree Climbing Class A tree trunk was set at a 30-degree angle so all the animals had a chance to succeed. The rabbit tried so hard that he hurt his leg.
Remedial Flying Class Flying is not my forte….
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 werelaughing. The rabbit wasmore humiliated that hehad ever been in his life.
At home… I don’t like school… I just want to be free….His parents said“You have to get adiploma or otherrabbits are goingto getahead of you.”
At school at the counselors 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… “Oh, what“When I graduated.. I will start a business a great placewhere rabbits would that would be!” do nothing but run, the squirrels could just climb trees, andthe fish could swim.”
