Day 179: Tortoise Does Forest Maintenance

Many large shell-less beings like to visit forests to do something they call “camping.”

While they are there, they erect small temporary shells that they crawl into – although oddly, only at night.

During the day, they mostly wander about totally unprotected, making lots of noise, climbing things they shouldn’t be climbing, tripping over things that are ridiculously easy to see and avoid and just generally making a mess.

Which the locals then need to clean up.

Forest maintenance isn’t for weaklings. It takes dedication, a strong back, equally strong legs (both front and back), and a very strong jaw.

It can also take a strong stomach.

For example, let’s say you are making your daily forest patrol rounds and suddenly you see that there is a large green tree sprouting right in the middle of the main foot path!

A diligent local happens across a large green tree blocking the main foot path.

You can’t just leave it there, obviously. So you set about doing what must be done, mowing it down and clearing the path.

If it is an especially big job, sometimes you may even have to work through lunch – or dinner.

With a strong back, strong legs, a strong jaw and (of course) a robustly strong stomach, there is no forest maintenance job that cannot be accomplished!
