Why the way We are

Recommended Posts

On the first day,God created the dog and said Sit all day by the door of your home and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past.For this,I will give you a life span of twenty years.

The dog said That's a long time to be barking.How about only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten.

So God agreed.

On the second day,God created the monkey and said:

Entertain people,do tricks and make them laugh. For this,I'll give you a twenty year life span.

The monkey said Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's a pretty long time to preform. How about I give you back ten years like the dog did?

And God agreed.

On the third day,God created the cow and said:

You must go into the fields with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun,have calves and give milk to support the farmer's family.For this,I will give you a life span of sixty years.

The cow said: That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back the other forty?

And God agreed.

On the fourth day, God created man and said:

Eat,sleep,play,marry and enjoy your life.For this,I'll give you twenty years.

But man said: Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back,the ten the monkey gave back and the ten the dog gave back;that makes eigthy,okay?

Okay, said God, You asked for it.

So this is why for the first twenty years we eat,sleep,play and enjoy ourselves.For the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family. For the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren and for the last ten years we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone comes by.

This is so true.

Good one chuck.

I have one good example of how to live a good life , my grandmother is 90 and still very active with her church running a few things there , playing in her garden growing vegetables, she still drives though I think that will end very soon she's gotten very frail now but she's actually really mellowed out in her years and still laughs a lot and enjoys her life, I think i'll give her a call this evening.
