  Two people lived in a box. One lived on the top of the box and the other beneath. It was quite a large box, so they hardly ever met. But that wasn’t a problem because, in fact, they didn’t get along and what was good for one seemed to be bad for the other. For instance, what was dry for one, was wet for the other; what was hot for one, was cold for the other and, since the box was so large, the heat stayed above and the cold below.

  One day, the box flipped over on its axis and, with it, the boxed inhabitants. The one now on top suddenly agreed with everything the other had previously said, and the one now beneath contradicted everything he had originally said.

The season had turned.
