On the first day, God created the cow. God said, "you must go to the field with the farmer all day long, and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer. I will give you a life span of 60years".

The cow said, "that's kind of a rough life you want me to live for 60 years. Let me have 20, and I'll give you back the other forty. And God agreed.

On the second day, God created the dog. God said, "sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. I will give you a life span of 20 years."

The dog said, "That's too long to be barking. Give me 10 years and I'll give you back the other 10. So God agreed .

On the third day, God created the monkey. God said, "Entertain people, do monkey tricks, make them laugh. I'll give you a 20 year life span."

The monkey said, "How boring monkey tricks for 20 years? I don't think so. Dog gave back 10, so that's what I'll do too, ok?" And God agreed again.

On the fourth day God created man. God said, "Eat, sleep, play, have fun,enjoy. Do nothing, just enjoy, enjoy. I'll give you 20 years."

Man said, "What? Only 20 years! No way, man. Tell you what,I'll take my 20, and the 40 the cow gave back, and the 10 the dog gave back, and the 10 the monkey gave back. That makes 80, OK?"

"OK." said God, "you've got a deal".
So that is why the first 20 years, we eat, sleep, play, have fun, enjoy and do nothing. For the next forty years, we slave in the sun to support our family, for the next 10 years, we do monkey tricks to entertain our grandchildren, and then for the last ten years, we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.
This is why I always tell my friends to Enjoy LIFE!!! That has become my motto as well. =)
