Friendly Encounter

I took a break from work in Los Angeles and went for a walk in the woods in a local park. I was walking down a path when a butterfly flew in front of my face and introduced itself.

The butterfly said, “Hi, how are you?”

I said, “Hi, I’m pretty good. How about you?”

The butterfly said, “I’m great. I’m enjoying my day.”

I said, “Me too. I love the constant sunshine here. It’s like you live a few feet from the sun. I came here from Chicago. I’m thawing out.”

The butterfly said, “I have some relatives that live in Chicago. They are always asking me to come and visit them. But I’m afraid that my wings would freeze and break off. It would be difficult trying to get around on these spindly legs.”

I took a look. I said, “Those are nice legs.”

The butterfly said, “Why, thanks!!”
