Short Story about Man, the Dog and the Burro. Told by Iris McShea





Sorry, the audio sucks on this. Need earphones.


0:04

the story is about the man the dog and a
0:07

burro. when God created the universe he
0:11

got, called the man with his dog and his
0:15

burro he told them this is the universe
0:18

I am creating you will dominate the
0:21

burro the burro will work for you
0:23

you will get to live 60 years and the
0:26

burro we get to live 30 so God called
0:31

the burro and wanted to explain the
0:34

things that he needed to do for men a
0:36

lot of hard work probably not eating too
0:39

much sacrifices so the burro tells
0:42

ah God well god is that is not the
0:46

case I want you to take ten years away
0:49

from me I we want to live only 20 so
0:52

God said done and the old man says oh I
0:55

want the extra
0:56

10 s'okay God gave it to him comes the
1:00

dog and he said you are to be
1:03

called dog man's best friend you will
1:07

have also you will enjoy your 
1:10

master but you need to be subjugated
1:13

to your master you have to do whatever
1:16

the master says no no matter how bad you
1:19

think it is and you will have 30 years
1:22

of life so the dog says well God I want
1:27

you to take ten years off me because that
1:30

will be too much for me to be so long
1:33

with a master and I have to do
1:35

everything so the man said God please
1:37

give me the extra ten years so that
1:42

means 60 years that he was the average
1:44

lifespan of the man plus 10 from the burro is
1:47

70 and 10 from the dog is 80 so the moral
1:53

of the story is that man asked for too
1:57

much now he spends 60 years of his life
2:01

living it normal then 10 years of his
2:04

life living a desperate and sick and bored and
2:09

the rest of his life alone with nobody
2:12

to talk to did you like the story
2:20

of course if I wouldn't get nervous I
2:22

will you but it's true though my grandpa
2:28

said it's true think about it don't us
2:33

you know live most of our later years
2:36

by ourselves because we live too long we
2:41

should stay stuck to the 60 years rather
2:43

than 80 and 90 and 100.
