“What colour is it?” asked Wallaby.
THE CHANCE (2)
Owl was extremely intelligent, and this is precisely what Owl told everybody. To prove the truth of this statement, one-afternoon Owl invented a completely new colour.
It was Wallaby that discovered this when he asked Owl what he was doing perched on a tree branch.
“I am inventing a new colour,” stated Owl.
“What colour is it?” asked Wallaby. It would seem that Wallaby had forgotten how silly it was to ask Owl questions. But Wallaby had asked, and it was therefore right and correct that Wallaby should suffer the consequences.
Owl puffed out some chest feathers, and stated arrogantly “My dear Wally, I am vastly more intelligent than you, I can see and understand complex concepts that your own small mind could never grasp. On even the merest physical level you can barely jump. On a purely intellectual level, you can scarcely hop. Me, myself," boasted Owl, "on both physical and intellectual status can fly and soar above and beyond anything you could possibly dream." Then Owl continued with: “Wally, I sometimes wonder about the imaginations and awe you must feel every time we encounter one other. Tell me young Wallaby, when you look at me...what do you see?”
“I see one crazy bird,” answered Wallaby humbly.
