Day 20 - The Father's Day Fish Fry


There is a Chinese Proverb that says this:  
"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day.  
Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime."


Clearly, this man did not understand economics.




A man who has learned how to fish will buy a boat, multiple fishing poles,
expensive lures, live bait, nets, and a depth finder.


A man who has learned how to fish will get up before the dawn (on a weekend!)
 and pack a cooler full of drinks and snacks to sustain him in his efforts.


A man who has learned how to fish will spend hours and days
and even plan entire vacations around this all-important 
knowledge of fishing.


A man who has learned how to fish will, after a day in the hot sun,
bring home his prized trophies and spend the next several hours preparing them.


All for a single meal?



Yes, all for a single meal.

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!

TODAY'S SPENDING:

Priceless!
