A hippo story

In Faraway Land, there once lived a hippo named Jane. Since she was three, she has been dreaming of dancing gracefully like a ballerina. One day, she told her friends about her dream. They mocked her heavy mass that prohibited her from spinning and rotating, and her abbreviated arms that were too little to reach above her own head. Jane became depressed, and decided to take a swim in her usual pond. As she waddled around in tears, she noticed the graceful gliding of nearby angelfish. She carefully examined their strokes, and started to copy them. She wiggled and wobbled, and before she knew it, she stroked elegantly in harmony with the angelfish. Jane suddenly felt so free in her newly choreographed underwater dance, that she was completely lost in trance. She no longer cared what the world has to mock her with.
