Turtle Trouble, by Russell Conover

Ted the Turtle was a happy turtle. However, he hated always being left in the dust. Every day, other animals passed him by as he struggled to catch up.

“If only I could fly,” Ted thought. “That would be so cool!”

The next thing Ted knew, he was soaring above the ground, amongst the clouds. The view was spectacular, and the sensation was exhilarating.

“This is awesome!” Ted thought. “Pinch me–I must be dreaming.”

Then Ted woke up.


Poor Ted. So close to ultimate satisfaction, yet so far from what he wanted.

Never give up on your dreams.
