BEAR (looking around): What? Hello?
BEAR: Oh! there you are. My, that sure was a loud sound for such a small fellow.
FROG: It is a thing I am good at. I am basically a puffy bag.
BEAR: It’s good to see you, puffy loud bag.
FROG: Thank you. Nice to see you too. You seem a bit… hungry.
BEAR: Oh, I always seem that way. I am a bear.
FROG: I see.
FROG: What on Earth is that sloth doing?
BEAR: Looks like there’s something up that sleeve.
FROG: I thought maybe it was just a fellow unable to manage their sweater.
BEAR: We must all try to manage our sweaters, as best we can.
FROG: Our sweaters, and our towels.

FROG: Do you know how to type, Bear?
BEAR: Do these paws look like I know how to type?
FROG: Good point.
BEAR: I do know how to do some good graffiti on trees though.
FROG: I don’t weigh enough to make the keys go down all the way. Except the space bar. I’m good at the space bar.
BEAR (Scratching back on tree): Aahhhhh, this is a good scratch.
FROG: My, you do push on that tree very hard, don’t you.
BEAR: Just enough to scratch, Frog. Never knock down your favorite scratching tree.
FROG: That is wise.
FROG: So bears need space, do they? Should I hop back?
BEAR: No, you’re good. You’re a frog. You take up the space of a frog. Also, you are friendly.
FROG: I appreciate that. I’m a rather amorphous fellow. I can squish a lot smaller…
BEAR: Wow! You really can. Where did you go?
FROG: I am here, on top of your head. I jumped here.
BEAR: I hope that sloth figures out how to untangle that sweater.
FROG: I hope so too. I want to know what’s up that sleeve.
BEAR: There’s more sloth up that sleeve, I’m pretty sure.
FROG: For sure. See you soon, Bear.
BEAR: See you soon, Frog.
