The Support of Nature

I was walking through a redwood forest when one of the redwood trees said, “Hey, get over here!”

I always come when something that can squash me calls.

I said, “Yes, sir?”

The tree said, “It’s Mamma!!”

I said, “I’m sorry.”

The tree said, “Stop apologizing. It belittles you.”

That’s true. It’s been scientifically proven that I shrink when trying to make amends.

The tree said, “It’s embarrassing watching you try and make a life for yourself in the city. You need to live in a tent next to me.”
