The Tortoise of Dreams…
Do you two remember when we sat in my dining room eating chocolate of questionable origin, and I looked to the window, put my hand to the glass and whispered:
"A tortoise lives in that garden across the street. A gigantic tortoise."
I paused. You two came to look through the window with me, standing silently at my side.
"I've never seen it," I continued. "But I know it's there."
We didn't see it that day. Indeed, we never saw it for as long as you were here. You may have thought it was a story. A made up flight of fancy. I do that sometimes. But this? Gentlemen… The Tortoise of Dreams is real. And I have proof, at long last.
Yes, tilt your head and look upon its ethereal beauty!
Ha. Aha. AHhAH. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHHHHAAAAAA!!!
