Jimmy once met a tiger.
It came to him and spoke to him and Jimmy was surprised to find that tigers could talk. He thought tigers would growl (or roar, or yowl) but this tiger sounded like TV static.
The tiger asked questions. Jimmy gained a tiger friend.
And then one day the tiger asked an important question, to which Jimmy’s answer was a definite, “Yes.”
A human wore a tiger skin. The tiger wore a human suit. Seamless, Jimmy couldn’t tell where the tiger ended and he began, even when he squinted real hard.
Unsure of whether he met a tiger or simply himself, Jimmy blinked his big cat eyes.
