The Baboon and the Tortoise
Bosede the Baboon invites Thabo the tortoise to a meal in this replay of FS. Bosede's meal, Thabo discovers, is up on his tree platform, which Thabo cannot reach. Bosede insists "Anyone who wants to eat with me must be able to climb." Bosede even bursts into laughter. A few days later, Thabo invites Bosede to a meal, and Bosede sets out immediately. To reach Thabo's hut, he needs to cross a patch of ground that has been scorched by a recent fire. Thabo insists that his guest Bosede wash his hands before eating. That scorched earth and a strip of mud are the only paths to the stream, and so Bosede keeps coming back to the meal with dirty hands. While Bosede makes these fruitless trips, Thabo finishes the food. "What you do comes back to you."
