Taoism

Hello, this is AJ. Welcome to the mini-story for "Taoism." Are you strong? You feeling good? Let's get started.

:: Mini-Story

There was a girl, a very happy girl...a very beautiful girl, an amazing girl. She had a big smile. There was an amazing, beautiful, intelligent, wonderful girl. Her name was Tomoe and she wanted to fight a gorilla. She was Japanese.

So first she contemplated her goal. When she contemplated fighting a gorilla, she realized that gorillas have a lot of brute strength. She realized, "Whoa, gorillas are gonna be hard to fight. It's gonna be hard to fight a gorilla." So of course she decided to go to the gym. She needed to become strong. She went to the gym every day. She strained...arrrghhh...to lift weights. She got stronger and stronger and stronger. Finally she was ready. She proceeded with her plan.

She flew to Africa. But there was a problem. The gorilla had a baby, a baby gorilla. It was a big, strong gorilla mom with a little, tiny, cute gorilla baby. Tomoe stopped. She visualized fighting the gorilla. And then she visualized the poor baby gorilla crying, "Oh, my mommy's fighting."

And so Tomoe took this into consideration. Tomoe decided not to fight the gorilla. Instead, Tomoe decided to play basketball with the gorillas (because she brought a basketball, of course). Tomoe always brings a basketball every time she travels. Everywhere she goes Tomoe brings a basketball, obviously. So Tomoe decided not to fight. Instead she played basketball with the gorilla and the baby. Everyone was happy.

And that is the end of our mini-story this time. I hope you're smiling. I hope you're standing strong. Deep breath, if you're not, do it now. Move your body. Get strong. Get some energy.

See you next time.
