A Little Funny

I got this in an e-mail, I thought it was pretty funny:

One day, God created the dog and said: "Sit all day by the door of your house 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 next 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 perform. How about I give you back ten like the dog did?" And God agreed.

On the next day, God created the cow and said: "You must go into the field 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 again.

Then on the next 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 eighty, okay?"

"Okay," said God, "You asked for it." So that is why 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. Life has now been explained to you.

--While reading through my e-mail, I came across one written by an old friend of mine from high's been about 6+ years. I'll keep you updated on how that goes. We used to be really close, and it was a big surprize to hear from her.

Independence Day

--I hope everyone enjoys their 4th. I already had my fireworks fun on Saturday, but today I'm visiting my parent's house for some fruit and grilled steak. Yummy!

--I have been doing much better.

Roger's g-ma not only survived the surgery but it slowed her heartbeat down some. We are going to go and visit her sometime this week.

My allergies have been kicking my ass though. I can't leave the tissue box anywhere, I have to tote it with me everywhere.

I aced my 16-week SPED class that was crammed into 4-weeks. She was super lenient on us since she kept having to miss class for her heart. After it's over, I don't know why I even stressed it.

Roger and I went through 11 months July 2nd. This is the longest I've ever been in a relationship, ever, and that makes me excited and nervous all at the same time. He's so good to me, and such a great guy, but we do have our quarrels. And like the big negative nelly that I am, I worry about losing him.

--I got tired of cleaning up poo every time we left the house or went to sleep, and we go to my parent's house every weekend, just about. So, one Saturday, before leaving, I put the cat in the bathroom with a litter box, food and water. She stopped pooing on the floor when we let her out Sunday evening! Until about two days ago...she started up again. So, I locked her in the bathroom again yesterday, for the better part of all day. We'll see how that goes.
