JIMMY THE JOKER
I once went hiking with Jimmy the Joker. He picked the trail: lonely and hemmed in by trees. Shadows danced. We heard a scuffing.
'Probably a bear,' said The Joker.
We found a river with a dinky waterfall. I unpacked our picnic.
I ignored him.
I sighed and looked up. And froze.
It stood on the opposite bank. The waterfall didn’t look so dinky now.
The bear abruptly retreated.
'It didn't want to get wet!' I said.
'Maybe, but there’s a bridge up ahead.'
'Just joking,' said Jimmy.
I hope you enjoyed this story and I look forward to your comments.
