Win - Win - Win
I have a good friend named Dave. He has a good friend named Eddie. Eddie has shot a lot of deer this year and has no more need of deer meat. He shot a nice buck the other day and only wanted the head, and told Dave if he knew anyone that wanted the meat, he could give it away to them. Dave had heard of how I lost my deer last week and called to ask if I wanted this buck. I said, “yes please.”
So, this past weekend, I went out to Dave’s farm and took the deer home, butchered it, and now we have lots of meat in our freezer. That’s a win for my family. The second win is that Eddie was able to give the meat to someone else who needed it. And the third win was that I didn’t have to go hunting at all this weekend, which I was undecided upon after what happened last weekend, thus, I didn’t have to struggle with any moral dilemmas.
An additional win is that, now that Dave’s barn has an empty slot for hanging a deer, he “needs” to go hunting again. When he told me that, his wife just smiled.
It’s good to have friends.
