The "Lion and the Mouse" is real

Today's rooster, tomorrow's feather duster; today's news item, tomorrow's bird cage liner. My father in law makes the joke "I be the boss today, you be the boss tomorrow".

Other than the fact that humility is in itself a good thing - I feel - the story of the lion and the mouse is real.

Basically, a mouse wakes a lion up who plans to eat it, then lets it go. Later on the lion is caught in a net by hunters - the mouse hears the noise and chews through the rope before the hunters return.

I believe in the story. I need to believe in the story.
