    Once upon a time there was a hare who, boasting how he could run faster than anyone else, was forever teasing tortoise for its slowness. Then one day, the irate tortoise answered back: “Who do you think you are? There’s no denying you’re swift, but even you can be beaten!” The hare squealed with laughter.
    “Beaten in a race? By whom? Not you, surely! I bet there’s nobody in the world that can win against me, I’m so speedy. Now, why don’t you try?”

    Annoyed by such bragging, the tortoise accepted the challenge. A course was planned, and the next day at dawn they stood at the starting line. The hare yawned sleepily as the meek tortoise trudged slowly off. When the hare saw how painfully slow his rival was, he decided, half asleep on his feet, to have a quick nap. “Take your time!” he said. “I’ll have forty winks and catch up with you in a minute.”

    The hare woke with a start from a fitful sleep and gazed round, looking for the tortoise. But the creature was only a short distance away, having barely covered a third of the course. Breathing a sigh of relief, the hare decided he might as well have breakfast too, and off he went to munch some cabbages he had noticed in a nearby field. But the heavy meal and the hot sun made his eyelids droop. With a careless glance at the tortoise, now halfway along the course, he decided to have another snooze before flashing past the winning post. And smiling at the thought of the look on the tortoise’s face when it saw the hare speed by, he fell fast asleep and was soon snoring happily. The sun started to sink, below the horizon, and the tortoise, who had been plodding towards the winning post since morning, was scarcely a yard from the finish. At that very point, the hare woke with a jolt. He could see the tortoise a speck in the distance and away he dashed. He leapt and bounded at a great rate, his tongue lolling, and gasping for breath. Just a little more and he’d be first at the finish. But the hare’s last leap was just too late, for the tortoise had beaten him to the winning post. Poor hare! Tired and in disgrace, he slumped down beside the tortoise who was silently smiling at him.

    “Slowly does it every time!” he said.

    Gotta give it to the tortoise. I mean, that's dedication.

    You don't find that now-a-days. Kids are too sloppy, want things too quickly.

    Sometimes you've just got to wait until the time is right. Even if it takes months or years.

    And when it is, boy is it worth it.

    you've never even attempted to go the distance with me, and you always dodge and retreat. I'd say that describes you better, given that.

    you've got me mistaken, anyway. the belligerent always take kindness as weakness.

    I suppose lifes losers have to take the small victories.

    The reality is that i simply lose interest.

    You say something stupid. I point out. You respond like a child. I lose interest


    And you arent nice. You just dont have any confidence in what your saying

    lose interest? you've been magnetically clinging to my nuts for months, son.

    quit trying to spin this around. I drop knowledge, you sneer at me and take shots, I rebuke you, and you dance around it. you've never gotten in the trenches against me, and you never will.

    you've always deflected, this time you call it losing interest.

    You literally talk like a 14 year old text battler.

    Deflecting or running away. Which is it?

    Ive always called it losing interest.

    no I don't, which is proven by the fact that you can't gainsay me.

    there's nothing childish about dealing with things accordingly. you won't throw me off with that. in fact, you're the one who is petty and ridiculous.

    you'll get dealt with as many times as you ask for it.

    if you're trying to gain a mental edge over me, it's not working.

    are you willing to fuck off for the time being?

    not sure why you're typing to yourself this way.

    I'd give you a pass this time since this has gotten especially pointless. even moreso than your "resolve" obsession. and you were calling me childish?
