I hope this letter finds you in the best of health. I am also doing well on this side. I am going to tell you about the story of two friends and the bear.
Once upon a time, two friends were walking through the woods. They saw a huge and burly bear walking towards them. One friend quickly climbed a nearby tree, forgetting all about his friend in fear. The second friend couldn’t run away as the bear was too near. He suddenly remembered a fact that he learned. He quickly laid down on the ground pretending he was dead. The bear came and sniffed him for a long time but eventually moved on as bears do not eat dead things. The first boy got down from the tree and congratulated his friend for his bravery and presence of mind.
This is one of my favorite tales; which one is yours?
