Once upon a time, there were 4 close friends - Hand, Mind, Tongue and Chicken. As you might have guessed, Hand, Mind and Tongue were close buddies since birth. Chicken was an outsider that started gelling well with his three friends. They used to be inseparable. Always together, played together, fought together, helped each other in time of need. Infact, some claim that the word "friendship" was conceptualized by the four of them.
Now this is how they used to spend / work each day - The Hand used to gather food and pass it on to the Tongue. The Tongue used to take the Teeth's help to break down and swallow the food. Mind you, Tongue and Teeth used each other but were never close. Quite often, the Teeth, in a fit of rage, used to hurt the Tongue. It happened once, twice, and became a regular feature. The Teeth used to apologize, but made no difference. Even the Hand and Mind were helpless. Coming back to the daily routine, after the food is swallowed, the small particles used to travel through small tunnels and used to reach the Mind. Mind used to feel energized and sends positive feedback to the Hand and Tongue. Hand responds by gathering food again.. And the cycle continues..
Hand, Tongue and Mind were completely devastated! It was as if they lost a big part of their life! All the three went into depression. But they had a bigger responsibility. Before sacrificing himself, Chicken had one last wish - he wanted the other three to remember him every single day of their lives and should carry out one activity which directly relates to him. Something that will be a symbol of their friendship and will ensure they remain together always. What could they possibly do?
Long live their friendship!!
PS: This is a fictional post as you might have already guessed and is written purely for the love of Chicken.
