The Donkey, the Rooster, and the Lion

A donkey and a rooster were in a straw-yard together when a Lion, desperate from hunger, approached the spot. He was about to spring upon the donkey, when the rooster (to the sound of whose voice the Lion, it is said, has a singular aversion) crowed loudly, and the Lion fled away as fast as he could.

The donkey, observing his nervousness at the mere crowing of a rooster summoned courage to attack him, and galloped after him for that purpose. He had run after him for a while… and the Lion, turned around, seized him and tore him to pieces.

MORAL: False confidence often leads into danger.

One night I woke myself up with a loud "Hello!" to someone in my dream. As the next day came and went, I thought the nocturnal outburst was mine alone to remember.

But that night, as my wife and I were getting ready for bed, she said dryly, "If you see anyone you know tonight, just wave."
