In the midst of my walk in the woods with the ghost of General Douglas McArthur, the General told me that trees make him uncomfortable. He felt like someone could be hiding behind a tree, ready to attack him.

I said that he should have told me that was his predisposition. I would have chosen a walk out in open space.

General McArthur said that I seemed so happy at the prospect at hiking in the woods, that he didn’t want to deny me that pleasure.

I said that any pleasure I might have gained from being amongst the trees was dashed at knowing his discomfort.

General McArthur apologized for not initially expressing his feelings. I accepted and we left the woods and continued our walk in a neighboring field.
