Found a Way to Help

This morning I went to the well. I drew the bucket up and was surprised to find it filled with Mountain Dew. Normally I would be upset at the well and ask why and demand that it gives me fresh water. But I sensed a gentler approach would be helpful.

I said, “What a nice morning.”

The well said, “Whatever.”

I said, “Yes, I love the sunlight shimmering the dew on the grass.”

The well said, “I hadn’t noticed that…I guess it’s kind of nice.”

I said, “Did I ever tell you how much I like the sound of your voice?”

The well said, “Really?”

I said, “Yes, it’s my favorite part of the morning.”

The well pulled the bucket back down to the water. The bucket came back up with fresh water. I unattached the bucket.

The wall said, “You have a great day!”

I waved and said, “You too!”
