It doesn’t take long after emerging from your small white escape pod that you start to notice all beings didn’t get the same number of feet.

Some don’t even have any feet at all.

(To your mind, this doesn’t seem advantageous.)

Some beings have two feet.

This is a little better.

But you – you have FOUR feet.

Four. Feet.

All to yourself.

And you can use them in any way you like.


Thinking strategically, however, you don’t want to use them all at once….put all your eggs in a single basket, so to speak.

Reason being, if you’d miss one foot, you’d miss all four even more.

Instead, it seems smarter to use each foot one at a time.

Take one small step. And then take another.

You can use different feet for each step, too – mixing it up as you go so any being out looking for lunch gets so confused watching you they give up and go hunt someone else.

Talk about a savvy survival move.

There is something to be said for that “slow and steady” stuff. Especially when you take it one small step at a time.
