Calvin Carrot was practicing a drum solo late one summer evening. Christopher Corn was with him.
“Let’s call it a night,” said Christopher. “You have been at that drum solo all day. You need to take a break.”
“Sure,” said Calvin, setting his drumsticks down. “I can practice more in the morning.”
Calvin and Christopher walked over toward the garden.
“Look at the owl in that tree,” said Calvin, pointing at the owl.
Christopher looked to where Calvin was pointing but he did not see an owl.
“I don’t see any owl,” said Christopher.
“Are you serious?” asked Calvin. “It is right there. I can see it as plain as day.”
“See what?” asked Farmer Fred, who just happened to be outside by the garden.
“An owl,” explained Calvin. “There is an owl right there in that tree. However, Christopher doesn’t see it.”
“I don’t see it either,” said Farmer Fred.
Just then, the owl flew down from the tree and flew right in front of Christopher and Farmer Fred.
“Oh,” said Christopher. “That owl.”
“I don’t understand why you didn’t see him,” said Calvin.
“I think I know why you saw him and we didn’t,” said Farmer Fred. “Calvin, you are a carrot and carrots can see a lot better than everyone else. In fact, humans eat carrots to improve their eyesight.”
“That makes sense,” said Calvin.
“Yes,” said Christopher. “It certainly does.”
