    Lawyer and the Senior

    A lawyer and a senior citizen 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 the senior would like to play a fun game.

    The senior 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 the senior'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?'
    The senior 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 the senior'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 the senior and then hands him $500. The senior pockets the $500 and goes right back to sleep.

    The lawyer is going nuts not knowing the answer. He wakes the senior up and asks, 'Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?'

    The senior reaches into his pocket, hands the lawyer $5 and goes back to sleep.

    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.


    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    who’s getting the better of the deal.

    Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise

    Re: Lawyer and the Senior

    You are missing a couple of lines:

    The lawyer is going nuts not knowing the answer. He wakes the senior up and asks, 'Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?'

    The senior reaches into his pocket, hands the lawyer $5.

    Should be followed by:
    The senior asks 'What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four?'
    Free $500!
