A parable..

Once there was a farmer,that awoke one morning to find his prize pig had been stolen!

This caused him some distress,because he knew it had to be someone that could come and go as he pleased,without causing any particular notice...Someone he knew,and trusted.

So,knowing this,he decided not to tell a single soul about the theft.

Several months passed,and one fine day,as he was leaning against the fence chatting with his neighbor,the neighbor inquired,"Hey,..did you ever find out who stole your prize pig?"..

"Not until just now",the farmer replied.

..Mystery solved.

all good things come to those that wait but it takes a wise man to wait.

i'd tell my lovely wife that the neighbor called her fat then sit back and watch justice unfold.

Normally opposed to violence, but I'm kind of waiting for the part of the story where you kick some serious pig-stealing ass.

Oh I'm shivering, waiting for the elaboration. The elaboration's coming, isn't it? Well, even if it's not, I like a good pig tail.

Hey kids!-
I wanted to post something that would let my blog buddies know that this particular situation has come full circle,and I know the devil is in the details.
But,elaborating here would only cause unnecessary discomfort for a very good friend.
Still,it was a damn fine parable! ;)
