My friend Dave is travelling the world at the moment, and seeking his soul. Or something like that. He is a wise man, and becoming wiser with every country he visits, it seems.
His latest insight struck me more than most. (With your permission, Dave, I would like to share it here.)
Dave raised the possibility that "...a dog playing fetch is just curious to see how far his owner can throw a stick."
And that, people, is what genius tastes like.
