The joy of going backwards!

I walked backwards from the moment I got out of bed this morning. I’d never done it before and I was excited. Sometimes I bumped into my walls. I apologized and the walls forgave me.

My dog Rexy said, “Hey, Fred, what are you doing?” I said, “I’m walking backwards, Rexy!” Rexy said, “Why?” I said, “I don’t know.” Rexy said, “Hey, can you take me for a walk and we can both walk backwards?” I said, “Sure!”

We went outside walking backwards. We continued the same way down the sidewalk. A bluebird flew down to us and said, “Hey, Fred and Rexy, what are you doing?” We explained. The bluebird said, “I’m gonna give it a try.” The bluebird flew backwards along with us as we walked.

Eventually everyone we ran into asked the same question, and we gave the same answer, and pretty soon everyone in town was going backwards. Even cars!
