  • 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 & a bottle of whiskey- #
  • in the other.The young gunslinger looked at the old man, laughed and said, “Hey old man, have you ever danced?” The old man looked- #
  • up at the gunslinger and said, “No, never did dance… can’t say as I ever wanted to.” A crowd had gathered as the gunslinger grinned- #
  • and said, “Well, you old fool, you’re gonna dance now,” & 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, & cocked both hammers. The crowd stopped laughing immediately. The young- #
  • gunslinger heard the sounds too, and he turned around very slowly. The silence was almost deafening. The shotgun never wavered in the- #
  • old man’s hands, as he quietly said, “Son, have you ever kissed a mule’s ass?” The gunslinger swallowed hard & said, #
  • “No sir, can’t say as I have… but I’ve always wanted to.” #
  • There are lessons for us in this story: 1. Never be arrogant. 2. Don’t waste ammunition. 3. Whiskey makes you think you’re smarter than- #
  • you really are. 4. Always, always make sure you know who has the power. 5. Don’t mess with old men… they didn’t get old by being stupid. #
  • I’ve been threatened with a hose. #
  • Thanks for the RT’s @Chevenga @lynthornealder 🙂 #
