I’m a Sloth in a Tree

I’m a sloth in a tree
no one staring at me
just a sloth in a tree
nothing too fascinating
I’m a sloth in a tree
just a sloth in a tree

I’m a sloth in a tree
someone’s looking at me
am I interesting?
nah, just a sloth in a tree
are they pointing at me?
nah, they just like my tree
and that’s okay by me
I’m just a sloth in my tree

I’m a sloth, look at me
just eating my leaf
such a sloth is me
just a sloth in a tree
I don’t fall from my tree
even when I’m asleep
just a sloth in a tree
with toes numbered three

I’m a sloth in a tree
no one knows about me
so no one wants to eat me
and that’s just fine by me
I’m a sloth in a tree
and if you would believe
if I fell from my tree
I could stay in one piece
cuz I’m a sloth you see

I’m a sloth in a tree
and if you would believe
something surprising
I can swim like a fishy
with my toes numbered three
but I’m best in my tree
doin’ my hanging
cuz I’m a sloth you see

I’m a sloth in a tree
are you looking at me?
and my toes numbered three?
chillin’ in my tree?
well, you’re cool too I see
in my neighbouring tree
with a toe less than me
but another kind of slothy
so let’s hang out, you and me
and enjoy some gravity!

Day 4

  Today we went golfing!  I didn’t do so badly, but had a couple rotten holes and ended with a 43….. still not a bad score if it mattered to me  haha   😉

  What was neat though were the little bonuses on the course: there was a roseate spoonbill hangin out on Hole 6, a tree with a large, active bees’ nest, and that tree itself was neat because it had some sort of hanging tubers that had lumps that appeared to open into a flower….. very very strange.  Wow!  Just out of curiosity (and not expecting such a quick result), I did a quick search for “tropical tree”, went to the first site, and guessed at a name that might fit — sausage tree.  http://mgonline.com/Sausage_Tree.html  Would you believe it?  I think it may have actually been that kind of tree!  Ahh, the internet is a wonderful thing.

  After golfing, we went to our friends’ place for a pizza lunch.  Very tasty, very fun.  I had a tickle in my throat that I couldn’t get rid of though, so I was going nuts trying not to cough every two seconds.  A couple funny jokes were told, let me see if I can remember any.

  Two men got up to the gates of Heaven and were addressed by Saint Peter.  Saint Peter asked the first man, dressed in a leather jacket, shades, and slicked back hair, “…..and who are you?”  The man replied, “I’m Derek Smith, and I’ve been a pilot for 31 years.”  Saint Peter looks at his list, exclaims, “Ah!  There you are,” and gives him a golden staff, a silk robe, and lets him through the gates.  The second man walks up to Saint Peter and is also asked who he is, to which he replies, “I’m John Brown, and I’ve been a priest for 31 years.”  Saint Peter consults his list, exclaims, “Ah!  There you are,” and gives him a wooden staff, and a cotton robe.  The man pauses a moment, then asks, “Why, Saint Peter, I can’t help but notice a discrepancy here….. that man was a pilot and got a golden staff and a silk robe, while I was a priest and only got a wooden staff and a cotton robe!”  Saint Peter replies, “Ah, yes.  Well, here in Heaven, we go by results.  You were a priest, and have made people fall asleep for 31 years, but he was a pilot and made people pray!”

hee hee.    🙂
