My father-in-law once told me a story about two tortoises that went on a journey from Cape Town to Johannesburg.
Five years into the trip, so the story goes, the pair arrived in Bloemfontein. Tired, hungry and thirsty, the tortoises decided to stop at the first tavern they came across and ordered two single-malt whiskeys. Just as the two whiskeys were served, they realised that they had left their wallets in Cape Town, whereupon it was decided that one of them should return to the Mother City to fetch it.
