2108. Would you believe?

I was walking along the road when I saw it. It was a lovely summer’s afternoon. Not much traffic. And there it was! On the side of the road. I was blown away. I had never seen anything like it before.

When I got home I told my wife.

“You won’t believe what I saw today. Suddenly. On the side of the road. There it was.”

“Goodness gracious!” she said. “Is it safe?”

“I’m not sure,” I said. “I suppose I should report it.”

“But who do you report it to?” she asked. “The police?”

“I don’t know,” I said. “I’d imagine the police wouldn’t be interested. It’s not a crime.”

“Well who then?” she asked.

“Do you want to come and have a look?” I said. “It will probably still be there.”

So we walked along the road. It was really rather exciting. But when we got there it was nowhere to be seen.

“Blast!” said Janina. “I’ve never seen the rare Purple-Spotted Seven-Toed Toad before.”

157. Toad goes for a drive


Toad and Mole were sitting in Toad’s car waiting for Ratty and Badger. They were all to go for a Sunday drive. Ratty and Badger were extremely late.

“Let’s go for a quick spin around the block while we wait,” suggested Toad.

“I’ll wait here in front of Toad Hall, and you go,” suggested Mole. “They might turn up while we’re gone.” He didn’t like Toad’s driving one bit.

Off Toad went, roaring in his new, bright red sports car. VROOOOOM!

A few minutes later he reappeared, braking to a screeching halt.

“Come on Mole!” he said. “Jump in! It’s such fun! I got a couple of road kill already. A badger and a rat. Poop-poop!”
