Story Found

"Jake" is an interesting person. I found the following story written longhand in our kitchen. I don't know if he wrote it or copied it, but either way (grammar corrected because it drives me crazy)...


There was a little boy, a man, and a mule walking. After a while people noticed the man riding the mule, and said "look at that horrible man let the poor boy walk." So the man let the boy ride. After a while the people said "look at that nasty boy make the old man walk." So they both got on the mule. After a while the people said "look at those nasty people torture that mule." So they both got off and walked alongside the mule. After awhile the people said "look at those foolish people waste a perfectly good mule."

No matter which way you do it, it's wrong.

This kid does some thinking, and does have ways of expressing it.

LOL... Well I have heard that story before... and he is telling it exactly right. Except, I think the last part... the "moral" of the story... is supposed to be that there's no way of pleasing everyone, so you just have to do what works best for you and do your best!
