The rain poured down for several days and the wombat began to worry. He decided to build a raft to escape the approaching flood.
He gathered some logs and arranged them on the ground. As he was about the lash them together a thought struck him, “I don’t want to sleep on the hard wood as I’m floating around”. He spent the rest of the night gathering grass to make a comfortable bed and then promptly fell asleep as the rain poured on.
The wombat later awoke to the water lapping at the entrance to his burrow. He scampered outside and jumped onto his raft.
The raft instantly fell apart.
Build the most important things first.
