Jim: Two Steps Forward, One Step Back

“Whatcha got there, Mog?”

“Oh, hey, Torg! Check it out! I call it a ‘bow and arrow’. I’ll use it for hunting.”

“Sounds kinda nifty! How’s it work?”

“You put the arrow – that’s this long, pointy stick – onto the bow string. Then you pull back like this and let go.”

“Are the bow and arrow supposed to fall onto the ground like that?”

“That’s weird. It worked yesterday.”

“Are you sure you’re doing it right?”

“I’m pretty sure. It’s hard to remember.”

“Maybe it just doesn’t work anymore. Come on! Let’s go get some grubs and berries.”

“Okay. Sounds good!”

Jim: The Fire’s On But Nobody’s Home

“Fire, Mog! Fire! Run away!”

“Settle down, Torg. This is my fire.”

“Your fire?”

“Yep. I made it myself by smashing some rocks together over dry moss for a couple of hours.”

“Hmmm. This must be a slow day for you. So, what’s this fire good for?”

“I dunno. I guess you could burn meat and things in it.”

“Why would I want to do that?”

“Dunno. It’s kinda pretty, though, huh?”

“So how do we make the fire go away, Mog?”

“I think we gotta pee on it.”

“Then let’s do that and go find something to eat.”
