punctual, concise, skeptical, philosophical
The hare was very skeptical, thinking there is no way the turtle will get here on time and actually be punctual. The turtle arrived shortly after the hare had finished his thoughts. They greeted each other tepidly. The turtle was very concise in his explanation of how he had got there in time. The turtle asked.” Where are we going for dinner?” With a nod and some heavy breaths the hare went off on a philosophical tangent about the pros and cons of various places. The turtle took a nap.
