Not Just For Scribbles

There was a period in Turtle's life in which he strongly believed that he was made out of paper. He wouldn't take a bath or go out in the rain for fear of what it would do to his outer layer; and never would he even contemplate entering a room where a fire was burning. At said time Turtle worked in a prestigious law firm and his associates would often see him chatting to the sticky notes and printer paper in the stationery cupboard. Only when a filing cabinet refused his request to nestle in amongst the "other" papers did Turtle start to contemplate that his existence may be as something more than just a mass of compressed fibers and pulp.

Turtle appreciates your comments. They're as tasty to him as a hot, steamy tea on a cold, wintry night.
