FABLE 163: A queen bee gave a pot of her honey to Jupiter, who was so delighted that he offered the bee anything she desired. The bee asked for the ability to kill her enemies. Taken aback, Jupiter fulfilled his promise, but said that the bee’s sting would come at the cost of her own life.
This fable is a reminder to be careful what you wish for. We started a little Cab project as a college fund for our kids, and it’s evolved into much more than we imagined. We’re so pleased with what’s happened, but we’ve had to adjust our expectations along the way.
