“Seek not happiness too greedily, and be not fearful of unhappiness.” – Lao Tzu
An older, white haired man walked into a jewellery store one Friday evening with a beautiful young girl at his side. He told the jeweller he was looking for a special ring for his girlfriend. The jeweller looked through his stock and brought out a $5,000 ring and showed it to him.
The old man said, “I don’t think you understand, I want something very special.”
At that statement, the jeweller went to his special stock and brought another ring over. “Here’s a stunning ring at only $40,000,” the jeweller said.
The young lady’s eyes sparkled and her whole body trembled with excitement. The old man seeing this said, “We’ll take it.”
The jeweller asked how payment would be made and the old man stated by check. “I know you need to make sure the check is good, so I’ll write it now and you can call the bank on Monday to verify the funds and I’ll pick the ring up Monday afternoon,” he said.
Monday morning, a very teed-off jeweller phoned the old man. “There’s no money in that account.”
“I know”, said the old man, “but can you imagine the weekend I had?”

“We learn from our gardens to deal with the most urgent question of the time: How much is enough?”
– Wendell Berry
Mirror, mirror a young woman buys a mirror at an antique shop, and hangs it on her bathroom door.
One evening, while getting undressed, she playfully says
“Mirror, mirror, on my door, make my bust-line forty four”.
Instantly, there is a brilliant flash of light, and her boobs grow to enormous proportions.
Excitedly, she runs to tell her husband what has happened, and in minutes they both return.
This time the husband crosses his fingers and says:
“Mirror mirror on the door, make my “manhood ” touch the floor!”.
Again, there’s a bright flash and both his legs fall off.”
Do you think the mirror fulfilled the husband’s desire or not?
