Throughout history, the search for the meaning of life has produced much philosophical, logical, religious, and supernatural speculation.
The story below has to be the greatest definition of life you’ve ever discovered. It might also make you chuckle once you understand how precise it is.
God made the dog on the first day. He stated: “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.”
“That’s too long to be barking. Give me ten years, and I’ll give you back the other ten," the dog replied.
So God agreed.
On the second day, God created the monkey. He said: “Entertain people, do monkey tricks and make them laugh. I’ll give you a twenty-year life span.”
“Monkey tricks for twenty years? I don’t think so. Dog gave you back ten, so that’s what I’ll do too, okay?” the monkey answered.
And God agreed.
On the third day, God made the cow. He said: “You must go to the 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 responded: “That’s kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. Let me have twenty, and I’ll give back the other forty.”
God agreed once more.
God created the man on the fourth day. He told him: “Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. I’ll give you twenty years.”
"What? Only twenty years? Tell you what, I’ll take my twenty, and the forty the cow gave back, and the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back, that makes eighty, okay?” the man replied.
God said: Okay, you’ve got a deal.”
So that is the reason the initial twenty years we eat, rest, play, and have a good time; the following forty years we work to support our family; the next ten years we do monkey tricks to engage the grandkids; and the last ten years we sit on the front porch and bark at everybody.
