Time Spent with the Ocean

I drove out to the Ocean. I got out, stood and looked.

The Ocean said, “Are you gonna say something or what?”

I said, “I just wanted to spend a little quiet time with you.”

The Ocean said, “Okay, sorry.”

I stood there quietly.

After a half minute, the Ocean said, “I’m sorry. I can’t do it. I gotta say something. So, tell me what’s up with you?”

I said, “Mostly I’m just tired from life and such.”

The Ocean said, “Yeah, I guess life can be that way.”

I said, “Don’t you ever get tired?”

The Ocean, “No, not really. I’ve been going at it for a little over 4 and a half billion years. I can’t imagine what it would be like to stop. Do you think I should give it a try?”

I said, “No, not really. I think it would cause a lot of problems.”

The Ocean said, “Sure, you’re right. I’ll just keep doin’ what I’m doin.”
