My girlfriend just e-mailed me this and I had to share it.


On the first day God created the cow. God said, "You must go to field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer. I will give you a life span of sixty years."
The cow said, "That's a kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. Let me have twenty years and I'll give back the other forty." And God agreed.
On the second day, God created the dog. God said, "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past.
I will give you a life span of twenty years."
The dog said, "That's too long to be barking.Give me ten years and I'll give back the other ten."
So God agreed (sigh).
On the third day God created the monkey. God said, "Entertain people, do monkey tricks, make them laugh. I'll give you a twenty year life
span." Monkey said, "How boring, monkey tricks for twenty years? I don't think so. Dog gave you back ten, so that's what I'll do too, okay?"
And God agreed again.
On the fourth day God created man. God said, "Eat, sleep, play, have sex,
enjoy. Do nothing, just enjoy, enjoy. I'll give you twenty years."
Man said, "What? Only twenty years? No way man. Tell you what, I'll take my twenty, and the forty cow gave back, and the ten dog gave back and the
ten monkey gave back. That makes eighty, okay?"
"Okay," said God. "You've got a deal."
So that is why for the first twenty years we eat, sleep, play, have sex, enjoy,
and do nothing; for the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family; for the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain our
grandchildren; and for the last ten years we sit in front of the house and bark at everybody.
Life has now been explained.

No I did not have the party I did plan it for next weekend his friends understood! I know sometimes these things happen for a reason, but heck he has been home two days since August 4, so I was kinda disappointed. And I had also took off work for vacation and was going to leave Monday with him for a couple of weeks to visit and see the country. But that is okay cause he will be home next weekend and then I can have the party...he can get his Ford 8N and then I can go!
