The Digger and the Hole
The Digger had heard that story before. The one where there once lived a digger who started digging for gold. And he dug and dug and dug, until one day when he couldn’t dig anymore and gave up. In the story, what happened then was that a new digger came along and went inside the already dug hole. All he did was dig a little more than a feet and he struck gold.
Now our Digger didn’t want to become like the first digger. He didn’t want stories to be told about how he could have put a little more effort and his life would have been made. So he dug and dug and dug and dug.
The digger died while digging that hole.
