Who does not thank for little will not thank for much. ~Estonian proverb
The other day, Monkey and I were walking along when a truck pulled up beside us, slowed, and its window slid open.
‘I’ll give you $15 for that dog,’ said the stranger with a twinkle in his eye.
I thought about it for a half-second, then replied, ‘You know, there are days — like when I have to pick up this (and I showed him Monkey’s filled poop-bag) that I might take you up on that offer.’
We had a nice chuckle before he drove off.
The encounter left me pondering how much — or how little — we actually value things in our lives.
