There was once a little boy who was born with a horrible birth defect. He had no legs. He had no arms. He had no torso. In fact, he had no body from the neck down!
But his parents loved him, and treated him like any other member of the family. They would place him on the dinner table, and spoon feed him. They made him a little inner tube, so he could float in the pool or bath. And so he see the world, they would set him up on the window sill, so he could watch the neighborhood children play in the yard and street.
But one day, they left him on the windowsill until after dusk. The little boy saw the first star appear in the night sky, and made a wish upon it, that he could be normal.
Lo and behold, the next morning he woke up, and his wish had been granted! He had arms, legs, and a body, He was so excited, that he ran outside to show the other children, and into the street, where he was tragically run over by a bus and killed.
There is a moral to this sad story, however.
Sometimes it's best to quit while you're ahead.
