A lawyer and old Titch are sitting next to each other on a long flight.
The lawyer is thinking that seniors are so dumb that he could get one over on them easy.
So the lawyer asks if Titch would like to play a fun game.
Titch is tired and just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines and tries to catch a few winks..
The lawyer persists saying that the game is a lot of fun. 'I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me only $5. Then you ask me one, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500,' he says.
This catches Titch's attention and to keep the lawyer quiet, he agrees to play the game.
The lawyer asks the first question. 'What's the distance from the Earth to the Moon?'
Titch doesn't say a word, but reaches into his pocket, pulls out a five-dollar bill, and hands it to the lawyer.
Now it's Titch's turn. He asks the lawyer, 'What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?'
The lawyer uses his laptop and searches all references he could find on the Net.
He sends e-mails to all the smart friends he knows; all to no avail. After an hour of searching, he finally gives up
He wakes old Titch and Then hands him $500. ..Titch pockets the $500 and goes right back to sleep.
The lawyer is going nuts not knowing the answer. He wakes old Titch up and asks, 'Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?'
Titch reaches into his pocket, hands the lawyer $5 and goes back to sleep.
Life is not about how hard you can hit, but how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.
