    Have You Ever Danced?

    Someone sent this to me and brought a chuckle. It's old, but maybe some have not read it before...

    *Have You Ever Danced?

    An old prospector shuffled into the town of El Indio, Texas
    leading an old tired mule. The old man headed straight for the
    only saloon in town, to clear his parched throat. He walked up to
    the saloon and tied his old mule to the hitch rail. As he stood
    there, brushing some of the dust from his face and clothes, a
    young gunslinger stepped out of the saloon with a gun in one hand and a bottle of whiskey in the other.

    The young gunslinger looked at the old man and laughed, saying,
    "Hey old man, have you ever danced?" The old man looked up at the gunslinger and said, "No, I never did dance... never really wanted to."

    A crowd had gathered as the gunslinger grinned and said, "Well,
    you old fool, you're gonna' dance now," and started shooting at
    the old man's feet. The old prospector, not wanting to get a toe
    blown off, started hopping around like a flea on a hot skillet.
    Everybody was laughing, fit to be tied.

    When his last bullet had been fired, the young gunslinger, still
    laughing, holstered his gun and turned around to go back into the
    saloon. The old man turned to his pack mule, pulled out a
    double-barreled shotgun, and cocked both hammers. The loud clicks carried clearly through the desert air.

    The crowd stopped laughing immediately. The young gunslinger
    heard the sounds too, and he turned around very slowly.
    The silence was almost deafening. The crowd watched as the young gunman stared at the old timer and the large gaping holes of those twin barrels.

    The barrels of the shotgun never wavered in the old man's hands,
    as he quietly said, "Son, have you ever kissed a mule's butt?"

    The gunslinger swallowed hard and said, "No sir..... but... I've
    always wanted to."

    There are a few lessons for us all here:

    Never be arrogant.
    Don't waste ammunition.
    Whiskey makes you think you're smarter than you are.
    Always, always make sure you know who has the power.
    Don't mess with old men, they didn't get old by being stupid.

    I just love a story with a happy ending, don't you?

    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    that's a good one
    There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
