Grasshopper In Nova Scotia

Grasshopper In Nova Scotia (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Once upon a time a lizard saw a grasshopper.

He said, “Grasshopper, will you be my friend?”

The grasshopper said, “Sure.”

So, they jumped and played.

Then, one day a mountain lion came up to them and said, “You’ll be a great snack.”

They hopped away as quick as they could.  They hid under a rock.  The mountain lion got tired of waiting for them and went away.

The lizard and the grasshopper gave each other high fives.
