NPG 44 - Holiday Edition - The Fir Tree


Happy holidays from Nerd Goggles Podcast. This episode includes a dramatic reading, by me, of:

        The Fir Tree by Hans Christian Anderson

Run Time (15:42)


Addendum:

In hindsight I should have given a better final thought after reading for the podcast. I was being hasty. 
Not a valid excuse.
 
You don’t have to be happy with what you have. Some stuff sucks. 

The tree in the story kept imagining it was missing out on better things & wanted more adoration. 

It, the tree, got a hard lesson in humility.
