“I’m not saying you can’t ask him for help,” Beech Marten explained. “I’m saying he’s not going to be any help to you when you ask him.”

Lowland Gorilla dropped her purse into the youngling’s seat and pushed the cart into the store. “Oh, not the crazy wheel! I hate it when I get the cart with the crazy wheel. Can this day get any better?”

Mountain Beaver sat heavily behind his captain’s desk. “Until I have the morning report from sick bay, we remain well offshore. You may advise the rest of the crew of my decision. Dismissed.”

The check engine light extinguished itself along with the car and Golden-capped Fruit Bat glided the dead vehicle to the side of the road. “If this day gets any longer it will be morning all over again.”
