                                               The snail and the sea

 

 

 

- Where are you hurrying up to? - asked the seagull with a surprise flying over the snail, which wasn't crawling, but ranning on the ground.

 

- To the sea - without slowing down the run, answered the snail.

 

- And do you know how to swim? - with a sneer shouted the seagull.

 

- I don’t know yet - the snail smiled - I couldn’t run before and the sea was too far away.
