The Thirsty Crow

  1. One hot day, a thirsty crow flew all over the fields looking for water. For a long time, he could not find any. He felt very weak, almost lost all hope. Suddenly, he saw a water jug below the tree. He flew straight down to see if there was any water inside. Yes, he could see some water inside the jug!
    The crow tried to push his head into the jug. Sadly, he found that the neck of the jug was too narrow. Then he tried to push the jug to tilt for the water to flow out, but the jug was too heavy.
    The crow thought hard for a while. Then, looking around it, he saw some pebbles. He suddenly had a good idea. He started picking up the pebbles one by one, dropping each into the jug. As more and more pebbles filled the jug, the water level kept rising. Soon it was high enough for the crow to drink. His plan had worked!
    Moral: Think and work hard, you may find solution to any problem.

    Entertain us with that facile mind and wit of yours.

    We will all be better people for it!

    Impressionable, shiny young minds deserve the room and space to find their way and then reveal to others, triumphantly, their epiphanies as if the story and the morals are new, however tired the stories may seem to others...like me. I kind of felt like sticking finger toward the back of my throat and gagging, to tell you the truth. And I wanted to say "Oh Puleeeeze!" and .

    D'OH! Like chrysalis becoming butterflies, you know ... cliches and all that crap.

    You mean, if I THINK, I can be creative and come up with something that can work as well??

    Wow.

    But, just because I've been doing that very thing for YEARS....I decided it wasn't polite to step on someone's mental toes.

    Didn't want to take the chance of being drummed out of AN because I can slice someone with ginsu-knife wit. S'too easy.

    And if it was a troll, Ppppffffttt. Not worth the trouble, not worth wasting words on.
