Why do I have a hump?


Water Fountains.

I wished I had your talent. How often have you heard that said to you? The trouble is that the people who say it probably do, they have just never got round to finding out. In fact the bottom line is that most of them will have even more talent lying hidden waiting to be put into action.

There really is nothing worse than having a talent and not putting it to use. I am guilty of this, it is years since I lifted a saxophone or clarinet and played music. It is ages since I last wrote a song with music.  My excuse is that it is all about time and place. But the real truth is it is more about prevarication. Putting off and finding other things to do.

A mother and a baby camel were lying around, and suddenly the baby camel asked, “Mother, may I ask you some questions? 

Mother said, “Sure! Why son, is there something bothering you? 

Baby said, “Why do camels have humps?” 

Mother said “Well son, we are desert animals, we need the humps to store water and we are known to survive without water”. 

Baby said, “Okay, then why are our legs long and our feet rounded?” 

Mother said, “Son, obviously they are meant for walking in the desert. You know with these legs I can move around the desert better than anyone does!” 

Baby said, “Okay, then why are our eyelashes long? Sometimes it bothers my sight”. 

Mother with pride said, “My son, those long thick eyelashes are your protective cover. They help to protect your eyes from the desert sand and wind”.
Baby after thinking said, “I see. So the hump is to store water when we are in the desert, the legs are for walking through the desert and these eye lashes protect my eyes from the desert. 
Then what in god’s name are we doing here in Edinburgh Zoo!?”
What is the use of having abilities and talents if you never put them to use?

Have a good day.
