Friday Wisdom – Bob

One morning Bob the bat flew back to his cave.  All the other bats noticed that he had blood dripping from his face and assuming he’d found something great to eat, starting asking him, “What did you find? Where is it?  Is there more of that?”

“I don’t want to talk about it.” Said Bob.

“Come on Bob, you have to share! If you found some thing good to eat, you have to share.” Said the others.

“I didn’t find anything to eat.  I’ve had a bad night.  Leave me alone.” Replied Bob.

But they wouldn’t.  The other bats kept crowding around demanding Bob tell them where he got the blood on his face.

Finally Bob yelled, “FINE! I’ll show you.  Follow me.”  And out of the cave they flew.

Bob led them over a mountain, through a meadow, across a stream, and stopped in front of a large tree.

“See that tree?” Asked Bob.

“Yes, Yes!” The other bats said excitedly.

“Yeah, well, I didn’t.”

Moral of the story: When flying at night, look out for trees.  They hurt if you hit them at full speed.
