Why Mice Like Cheese
Once there was a mouse. He loved to eat chocolate. One day, his friend, Bear, came to visit.
Bear asked “Why do you like chocolate so much?”
Mouse answered, “It's so sweet. I love it so much that I will never even try anything else.”
Bear said, “Well, I like cheese.”
Then Mouse said “Have you ever tried chocolate?” Now, Bear had never even tried chocolate, but he lied and said “I don’t like it.”
Mouse said “How do you not like chocolate? It’s so ‘Rumptious ‘scrumptious.”
Bear said “You should try cheese. It’s so ‘licious ‘smishious.” They argued and they argued and they argued about which food was better.
After hours and hours they finally decided that they would each try the opposite food. Mouse would try cheese, and Bear would try chocolate. So they each tried the other food and they loved it, the only problem, was they liked the other food more. They did not want to admit that they liked the other food more.
The next day, Mouse went to the supermarket. There he didn't just buy his usual three cases of chocolate but he also bought a hunk of cheese. He wanted to get out of the supermarket before Bear came in and saw him with the cheese. Just as Mouse was walking out of the supermarket, he saw Fox coming toward him.
Fox said “I thought you didn't like cheese.”
“Well” said Mouse “I'm going to try something new.”
“Oh” said Fox.“See you.”
Just as Mouse was getting into his Mouse mobile, he saw Bear going into the supermarket. He decided to wait and see what Bear brought out in his cart. Five minutes later Bear came out with his usual three boxes of cheese. But this time Mouse saw a chocolate bar in Bear’s paw.
Mouse jumped out and said “I knew you liked ravishing chocolate!”
”Very wouth-matering right!”
“Well” said Bear “Inside the store Fox told me that you got a block of ‘lectable cheese.”
So the two friends confessed that they liked the other food too.
Bear liked chocolate so much that he gave up on cheese. Mouse liked cheese so much that he didn't eat chocolate for the rest of his life. So from that day on bears love chocolate and mice love cheese.
