Aardvark (Listen while you read)
The world is square; yes it is.
I know this for a fact! I know because I read it somewhere.
Yes I did.
That makes it true!
Doesn’t it make it true because it was written somewhere?
Well……. Maybe I’ll investigate to see if it is true.
Maybe it’s not true.
Maybe just because it is written somewhere doesn’t mean that it is true.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm ……. Have to investigate!
Well, well, well; it would seem that the Aardvark believes most things he reads; this is true, my friends.
It would seem that the Aardvark likes to think that all people are truthful.
Well, wouldn’t that be a lovely thing were this to be true? However, as most of us know; there are those who enjoy telling exaggerated stories in order to impress.
This they do, dear hearts.
There are others who insist that what they say is true, when they know (deep inside) their message may be tainted by lies and misconceptions.
Yes, my friends, it is better not to judge the character of the story-teller. However, it is best to judge the story.
Indeed, all have their frailties. We, none of us is perfect. And yet, were we to take each story as factual evidence of a state of reality we may be more than disappointed by the resultant consequences.
Therefore, my dear friends, judge not the story teller. However, most certainly take the story into your secret hiding place of the heart and, whilst there, allow your heart to decipher the truth.
It shall not let you down, dear one.
