The Old Turtle

When I was a boy I fished in a small pond. Once I caught a turtle. I carried him home and placed him in a small kiddy pool. I then walked back and forth from the pond to fill the pool because I knew tap water would kill it. It had the hook still stuck in its mouth and I tried to take it out. The turtle told me to stop, that he’d take it out, so I walked away. It was an elderly man’s voice. I returned and the turtle had worked out the hook. I then carried him back to the pond and set him free.
