In a Peanuts comic strip, the dog, Snoopy, and the little bird, Woodstock are sitting on top of Snoopy’s doghouse …
Snoopy says, “What are you doing here? You’re suppose to be out somewhere sitting on a branch, chirping. That’s your job. People expect to hear birds chirping when they wake up in the morning.”
With that, Woodstock flies off to the top branch of a shrub and belts out a single chirp. Then he flies back to the doghouse, and Snoopy says, “You only chirped once. You can’t brighten someone’s day with one chirp.”
So Woodstock flies back to the shrub and lets out six more chirps. And when he again returns to the doghouse, Snoopy smiles and says, “There now, didn’t that give you a real feeling of satisfaction? But, the bad news is you’re supposed to do that every morning, for the rest of your life!”
With this being more than Woodstock can take, he faints.
Please don’t faint when you hear…
