I picked up my journal today to begin writing, and came across this story that for some reason I documented back in 1997. Thought I'd share...
If You Are Unhappy...
Once upon a time there was a sparrow who decided not to fly South for the winter.
However, soon the weather turned so cold that he decided to head south. In a short time ice began to form on his wings and he fell to the earth in a barnyard almost frozen.
A Cow passed by and shit on the little Sparrow.
The Sparrow thought it was the end, but the shit warmed him and defrosted his wings.
Warm and happy, able to breathe he started to sing...
Just then a large cat came by and hearing the chirping investigated the sounds.
The cat cleared away the shit, found the chirping sparrow, and promptly ate him.
The Moral of The Story:
Everyone who shits on you is not necessarily your enemy.
Everyone who gets you out of shit is not necessarily your friend.
Oh, and if you're warm & happy in a pile of shit... Keep your mouth shut!
