Bicycle: Hello! Where did you come from?
Car: From the same city as you!
Bicycle: But… we are all black and white… and you are so colourful! How is that possible?
Car: It’s possible! It’s all in the mind!
Bicycle: But how?
Car: When the rain poured upon me, I smile… because it cools me down.
When it’s hot and sunny, I smile… because I need not turn on my headlights.
When my engine decided to take a break, I smile… because it’s time for my maintenance.
When my tyre is punctured, I smile… because I get a new replacement.
When I’m exhausted, I smile… because I’ve worked hard.
When I’m hungry and empty, I smile… because I’ve digested well.
When I move, I smile… because I am useful.
When I stop, I smile… because I can take a break.
Happy or sad, I smile… because I am alive!
This is what life is all about. Look on the bright side, and you’ll be as colourful as me.
