Life can be very boring, sitting the whole day in a corner, watching workers doing their job, even for a stuffed goat.
Do you believe in animism? I do. I have a soul like plants, winds, and mountains. I can’t speak but I can understand everything.
When one day one worker scolded her pretty daughter for not studying properly and failing in the same class again and again that if she fails one more time he will marry her off to me.
Since then life has become a bit interesting. I am waiting for her to fail.
Optimism makes life bearable.
The first version of FF
I was assigned the most important job in the office to keep watch on fellow workers.
I knew they despised me and whispered to each other, ‘ see that back biter, sitting there a whole day like a stuffed goat, doing nothing and bleating all the time.’
I might have resigned long back but one day I overheard the boss threatening that pretty worker, ‘ look you silly goat! You make too many mistakes. One more mistake and I will make you marry that goat and resign.’
Since then I’m waiting for her to make a mistake. Hope keeps a man alive.
