I want to learn to swim.

Do you want to make a bargain about it?

No. I only have to take my ton of cabbage.

What cabbage?

The food I will need on the other island.

There is better food there.

I don’t know what you mean.
I cannot be sure.
I must take my cabbage.

You cannot swim, for one thing, with a ton of cabbage.

Then I cannot go.
You call it a load.
I call it my essential nutrition.

Suppose as an allegory, we call it not cabbage, but assumptions or destructive ideas…?

I am going to take my cabbage to some other instructor who understands my needs!
