Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

Friday, October 31

Follow me!

Late one night a vampire bat came flapping into his home cave, covered in fresh blood, and settled himself on the ceiling to get some sleep. But he was to have no peace. The other vampire bats had smelled the blood, and now they were anxious to know where he had gotten it. At last, with a sigh, he unfurled his wings again and said, "Follow me."

And hundreds of bats did, flying down through a valley, and across a river, and then into a forest of trees. Finally he slowed down, and all the other bats milled excitedly around him. "Do you see that tree over there?" he asked.

"Yes. Yes! YES!"

"Good," said the first bat. "Because I didn't."
