Tortoise Rider

by HereWeGoAJen on August 31, 2010

The brave tortoise rider mounted the savage beast.  The creature took off, galloping around the paddock at breakneck speeds.  The rider remained firmly seated, stanchly holding on to the creature’s neck, as it performed a series of acrobatics designed to unseat its rider.  Courageously, the rider calmed the ferocious beast, placing her baby soft hand on the brute’s back and commanding it to be still.  The fiend pacified, the tortoise rider swaggered out of the corral to swig a glass of juice, proud of a job well done.

ACK! Don’t let them tell you that’s ok again! Not your fault, THEIRS, but over time, that really deteriorates their spines (which is attached to their shell) even with little ones. Darn people. Grr.
