The Reason Why

I was walking through the deep woods when I came upon a deer.

The deer said, “Hi, my name is Qualm, the magic deer.”

I said, “Hi, Qualm, I’m Broo-“

The deer said, “No, it’s Qualm, the magic deer.”

I said, “I’m sorry, Qualm, the magic deer. I’m Brooks.”

The deer said, “It’s good to meet you.”

I said, “Likewise. How are you magic?”

The deer said, “I’m not. It’s just part of my name.”

I said, “You must get asked that question a lot.”

The deer said, “Yes, that’s why I moved out to the woods.”
