“I know, Blue Jay, I know. We can't change what we are but we may be able to change what we do,” and without waiting for a comment from his bird friend, he kept on talking. “I have watched you flying. You make it look so easy that I want you to teach me.”
“Teach you how to fly?” cried the bird. “Yes,” said the pig. “Can you imagine what the newspapers will say?...Pedro, the only flying pig.”
“Listen, Pedro, I can make flying look easy because I am made for flying. I don't think you could fly no matter who gave you lessons,” said Blue Jay.
