A family of Tortoise (Momma Tortoise, Daddy Tortoise, Uncle Tortoise, and Baby Tortoise) decide to go on a picnic, they pack up their hamper and being their journey to the park.
A week later they get the park unwrap their hamper and realize they’ve forgotten the salad cream. They plead with Uncle tortoise to go back for it.
“No way, it’ll take me two weeks to get there and back! You’ll start the food without me and it’ll be gone when I’m back!” he says.
After assuring him they won’t touch the food until he returns, he goes off on his way. 2 weeks later and the Tortoise family are getting hungry but there’s no sign of Uncle Tortoise.
“I’m sure he’ll be here soon, we promised we wouldn’t start without him” says Momma Tortoise
Another week goes by and he’s still not come back. By now the Tortoise family are starving.
“We’re all hungry but we promised so we’ll have to wait I’m afraid” says Momma Tortoise.
Another week goes by and still no sign of Uncle Tortoise.
“I can’t take this anymore, we can’t starve ourselves” says Daddy Tortoise grabbing the sandwiches and passing them around.
As he takes his first bite, Uncle Tortoise pops up from behind a bush and says “I knew you were going to start without me, I’m not going!”
