ONCE A YEAR, THE EEL CAME UNANNOUNCED TO THE FOREST, TO RECONNECT WITH OLD CONTACTS. He came disguised, like every year, and this time he was dressed up as the cockatoo. The eel did not know that the cockatoo had been here on a holiday a while ago and had frequently come back after that.
“Hi cockatoo”, said the sheep.
“Hi sheep”, cockatooed the eel and immediately moved on. To delay for as long as possible that he would be unmasked, he made sure his chats were as short as possible.
“How are you doing?” said the frog, who was always interested in everybody and everything.
“So, so”, said the eel and then kept his mouth shut.
The frog jumped away again, why stick around where there’s no fun.
“Hello there, cockatoo!” called the butterfly from afar, “I wasn’t expecting you till next week!”
“Yeah, right”, mumbled the eel, on guard, because the butterfly seemed to have friendly ties with the cockatoo. He quickly slithered away.
