Oliver Meets A Dolphin

Updated: Jan 16


How would the conversation go if Click stopped to chat with you? What would you ask Click?

I was searching for hermit crabs along the shore of Ole River. I heard a muted splash and was surprised to see a dolphin within a few feet of me. The dolphin said

Namaste

Surprised by a dolphin being so close, amazed to hear a dolphin talking, and not knowing the meaning of namaste, I managed to say

Hey

Who are you?

My name is Oliver.

You don’t look like me. What are you?

I am a boy.

Can you swim?

Yes.

I can swim fast. Can you?

Yes. But I cannot jump as high as you unless my Mom gives me a boost. Why is there a boomerang on your back?

That is my fin. Without it I would turn like a pig roasting on a spit. By the way, my name is Click.

Click. That’s a great name for a dolphin.

What is that curly stuff on your head?

Hair.

I had a little when I was a baby.

How old are you?

I’ll be 4 this month. We are going to celebrate by playing with Captain Awesome and his sleek and beautiful blue boat.

I’m having a birthday soon. I will be 4 too. And I am having a birthday party. You can come.

I cannot.

Why not?

I don’t have walking sticks like you. So I will whistle happy birthday to you when I play with the blue boat.

That’s my Dad’s excursion boat. He takes people for boat rides. He likes it when you visit. See you on the waves.

Bye, Oliver. I hope we meet again.

Bye.
