Once upon a time, there was a small bug. He lived by himself in what he thought was a huge jungle. It was actually just a nice Persian rug. He wandered around the rug, eating bits of this and that, but as he wandered he often encountered HUGE obstacles to his progress. He was so frustrated. He would whine and cry, and even stamp his feet with frustration. Sometimes, he encountered so many big obstacles in one day (which is many months in a bug's life) that he would even wish that he were dead, so that he wouldn't have to fight against the obstacles all the time!

Then, one day, he crawled onto a piece of paper that had fallen onto the floor. Someone happened by and set the paper on a table near to the rug. The little bug crawled to the edge of the table, and he looked down on the rug that had been his home. He realized that all this time, the terrible obstacles that he had been so frustrated over - were patterns in the rug! All this time he had wished and begged for something to change, but only now did he realize that it had merely been what he had chosen to see that had given him such pain and difficulty. He realized that no one was trying to make him frustrated, but that he had simply been too close to the rug to see the pattern.

The end.

I heard it in a song, actually, one of those voice-overs over an instrumental track, on the way to lunch yesterday.

Perhaps she'll die.
