04 Mar VAT: Fooling Around
A schnauzer with a poodle haircut looks like a poodle but is still a schnauzer and can’t compete against poodles in a dog show.
An elephant who thinks himself a tiger will chase a wildebeest but never catch up to it. Even if he does, he can’t digest it and will likely starve.
When we try to fool others or ourselves, we eventually get caught fooling around which is generally embarrassing and at times devastating.
