"Chester," said Suzie Chipmunk. "We have to collect our acorns today.''
"I wanted to play today," said Chester Chipmunk. "Can't it wait until tomorrow?"
"No," said Suzie. "It can't. We have to do it today. The winter season is coming up fast."
"Alright," said Chester. "I guess it really can't wait any longer."
Chester and Suzie went to the forest and spent the whole day collecting acorns. They had more than enough by late afternoon.
"I do feel much better now," said Chester. "I'm so glad that we took the time to do this."
"I knew you would feel better about this whole thing," said Suzie.
"Lets have dinner now," said Chester.
"Okay," said Suzie.
Chester and Suzie sat down and ate their dinner. When they finished, Chester glanced out the kitchen window.
"I'm more glad than ever that we got our work done today," said Chester.
"I can see why," said Suzie, looking outside at a raging snowstorm. "The winter season is here!"
