“Wrinkled Was Not One of the Things I Wanted to Be When I Grew Up”

Another Thought...

PostHeaderIcon Fly going down!

Once upon a time …….

In the dead of summer a fly was resting on a leaf beside a lake. A hot, dry

fly who said to no one in particular, “Gosh… if I go down three inches, I

will feel the mist from the water and I will be refreshed.”

There was a fish in the water thinking, “Gosh…if that fly goes down three

inches I can jump out of the water and eat him.”

There was a bear on the shore thinking, “Gosh…if that fly goes down three

inches… that fish will jump for the fly… and I will eat him.”

It also happened that a hunter was farther up the bank of the lake

preparing to eat a cheese sandwich. “Gosh,” he thought, “if that fly goes

down three inches… and that fish leaps for it… that bear will expose

himself and grab for the fish. I”ll shoot the bear and then have a proper

lunch.”

(You probably think this is enough activity for one bank of a lake, but I

can tell you there was more.)

A mouse by the hunter”s foot was thinking, “Gosh… if that fly goes down

three inches… and that fish jumps for that fly… and that bear grabs for

that fish… the dumb hunter will shoot the bear and drop his cheese

sandwich.”

A cat lurking in the bushes took in this scene and thought, as was

fashionable to do on the banks of this particular lake around lunch time,

“Gosh… if that fly goes down three inches…and that fish jumps for that

fly… and that bear grabs for that fish…and that hunter shoots that

bear… and that mouse makes off with the cheese sandwich… then I can

catch him and have mouse for lunch.”

Finally, the poor fly is so hot and so dry that he heads down for the

cooling mist of the water…

The fish swallows the fly… The bear grabs the fish… The hunter shoots

the bear… The mouse grabs the cheese sandwich… The cat jumps for the

mouse… The mouse ducks… The cat falls into the water and drowns.

The moral of the story is….

Whenever a fly goes down three inches…

Some pussy is probably in danger
