Chased by Bears


Caleb was playing on his PS4 when Brody came in the room.

“Come running with me. You could really use the exercise,” said Brody. He sat down on a chair to tie his shoes.

“The only reason to run is if you’re chased by bears,” replied Caleb.

“There aren’t any bears around here,” said Brody.

“That’s why I don’t run.”

“Exercise is good for everyone. And besides, you’re reason is flawed,” said Brody.

“How’s that?”

“If you never practice, you’ll never be in shape when the bears come.”

Caleb shrugged. “I only need to be faster than one other person and tripping is allowed,” he explained.

Brody shot Caleb an exasperated look. “You have an answer for everything, don’t you?”

Caleb paused his game met Brody’s gaze. “I can’t explain why some people insist on forcing their lives on everyone else.”
