I went out to get some water. I drew the pail up from my well. I was surprised to find it filled with molasses.

I said down to the well, “Um, are you okay?”

The well said, “Yes. I was thinking you could use some sweetness in your life.”

I said, “Well, why, what do you mean?”

The well said, “…it’s just, um, well, actually, I thought, ahhhh, well you know…I just wanted to say I love you.”

I said, “Wow, thanks. I love you too.”

I took the pail of molasses and walked back to my house. When I got inside I poured the molasses down the drain. I’m allergic to molasses, but I didn’t want to refuse the gift from the well because it would have hurt its feelings.
