Aesop's Fable Friday

The Arab and the Camel

An Arab loaded his Camel, and then asked him whether he preferred to go up or down hill.

"Why do you ask, Master?" said the Camel dryly. "Is the level way across the desert closed?"

Moral of the story: Of what use is it to pretend there is a choice when there is none?

Hi, Monica. I wrote a new post on my blog, so come on over and check it out.

BTW, the answer to your Fable question (Of what use is it to pretend there is a choice when there is none?) can be found in the annoying phrase, "I was just messin' with ya."
