You reap what you sow

Thinking about Laura's "Chris Rock Thing" made me recall Aesop's Fables. At a young age, my favourite book, apart from the Holy Bible, was Aesop's Fables, the Fairy Tales by Hans Christian Andersen. Couldn't get enough of the same stories over and over. They got me thinking differently each time. Loved learning to look at the truth of matters from different angles and points of view. And wished for Santa to bring a larger collection of Aesop's Fables. I still like stories that have a moral, something to think about and learn from.

Laura lives in New York City and her entertainingly written true story (well, I believe it anyway) is a fascinating account of her relationship with a new cell phone. Laura would not have much of a story to tell if she had not used her imagination so creatively or if she had gone against her kindly honest nature and not followed her own hunches. Also, she sensibly took no heed of some of the suggestions at Meta Filter. Well done to Laura for listening to her conscience, following her own instincts and writing "Chris Rock Thing" and Update.

Perhaps the moral of Laura's story is this: you reap what you sow.
