While Bear is waiting for house guests, he goes to wash some berries. He thinks, “What if they’re not good, then my guests won’t like them! I’m going to taste them myself first.” He has one, then another. This one is sweet, the other sweeter. So Bear ties a scarf around his mouth and waits for his guests like that.
