Dragon gets an invitation for a picnic in the afternoon. Dragon is very excited and he puts together all the things he should bring and prepares his famous purple potato salad. Dragon's all set to hurry off to the picnic, but the picnic's in the afternoon and it's still just morning. The afternoon seems like such a long way away and Dragon has lots of time to wait, so he does the most logical thing and decides to eat a tasty snack... but very very slowly. Except, of course, Dragon can't eat slowly... he'lls have to pass the time some other way. He decides to try to do whatever Cat does, but Cat quickly falls asleep and Dragon isn't sleepy at all. Instead, Dragon tries to pass the time by doing all sorts of picnicky things: Pretending he's playing badminton, chasing butterflies, running around in a hurry, tickling himself. All this passing the time wears Dragon out and he falls asleep -- Until Mailmouse phones reminding Dragon that the picnic has started and not to be late. Dragon is very pleased with himself. He'd had to wait a long time for the picnic but he'd come up with so many fun and clever ways to pass the time it flew by in a jiffy. Dragon decides he is very good at waiting, after all.…Until Mailmouse phoned reminding Dragon that the picnic started and not to be late.
