Aesop's Fable Friday.
A Pig found his way into a meadow where a flock of Sheep were grazing.
The shepherd caught him, and was proceeding to carry him off to the butcher's when he set up a loud squealing and struggled to get free.
The Sheep rebuked him for making such a to-do, and said to him, "The shepherd catches us regularly and drags us off just like that, and we don't make any fuss."
"No, I dare say not," replied the Pig, "but my case and yours are altogether different: he only wants you for wool, but me he wants for bacon!"
Moral of the story: It's easy to cry "coward" when it's not you in danger.
Yes, yes, yes. I'm late again and fudging on the time. It's actually only 12 minutes after midnight so I am not being too terribly dishonest. My only excuse is that I've had a house full of children all day - - one leftover from a sleepover last night after a splash party (that I had to attend due to the young ages of my charges). I'm just NOW getting my chocolate and internet fix. Thanking you in advance for your understanding.
