This is Fruitycake The Raccoon. There are sounds that I love! The sound of Girl Person making our meals.
The sound of Boy Person getting up in the morning to make the persons mud in a cup. Because I know our day is getting started.
But there are sounds that I don’t like so much. Like construction noises.
And I really don’t like the sound of trains. Because they are loud. They are sudden. And I feel like I’m in danger. When I was living on the streets, I really had to watch out for those trains.
But now? Although trains don’t pose any danger to me now, there is another type of train. The Brickle Train.
And everyone? You better watch out. Especially if you are on the couch.
When Brickle decided to do something, he does it. There is no warning. There is no stopping him. None at all. You may think he is thinking or relaxing or sleeping.
And then watch out. The Brickle train wants a glass of water.
Or the Brickle train wants the couch. And if you are on the couch? You better move over. Or you better get off. Because your ticket is not as valuable on the Brickle train. Get out of the way.
The other night, I was trying to relax on the couch. And I forgot the train schedule. All of a sudden a choo choo was wooo wooo watch out. That Brickle Train didn’t care what was in his way and I didn’t move fast enough. So the train just sat on top of me. And that wasn’t comfy.
The Brickle Train doesn’t care where it’s going or who is in the way. Because the only way is fast. And it’s always right. Brickle says he doesn’t have time for chit chat when he wants to do something. He thinks about it long enough. And once he decides what to do, he does it.
Some persons could learn from that too. Once you’ve thought about a decision you need to make, and once you make that decision, do it. Believe in yourself. You’ve got this. Jump on the train of life. And tell everyone to get out of the way!
