I went for a walk in the woods behind my home.

I came upon a cave. I decided to explore. I walked in. I discovered some stalactites and stalagmites. I found a small pond. And then I happened upon a bear. I was scared.

I said, “Hi.”

The bear said, “Hello, how’s it going?”

I said, “Good. Just out for a walk….”

The bear said, “Excellent…Um, don’t worry, I’m not going to eat you.”

I said, “Thanks. I’m glad.”

The bear said, “I had a deer earlier this morning.”

I said, “Bad for the deer, good for me.”

The bear laughed.

I said, “I better go since it’s getting close to lunch.”

The bear smiled. He looked at me silently.

I thought, “I wish I hadn’t said that.”
