The Fly and the Frog
I fly passed by a frog. Given his knowledge of the frog’s diet, he was understandably nervous. Rather than hide, he decided on a different approach. “Fair frog,” he said, “I hear that you are an enchanted prince.” The frog eyed the fly, but said nothing. “Don’t you miss the food from the royal kitchens?” the fly continued.
“I do,” said the frog. “But I have to live in the present.”
And with that, well, you probably saw this coming all along.
