THE MAN IN THE MOON

 

I never saw the man’s face on the Moon.  No one asks me now whether I see the man’s face, but people asked me a lot when I was a kid.

“Do you see the man’s face on the Moon?”

“No,” I said.

“Are you sure?  Look.  There it is.  Don’t you see it?”

“Uh–yes,” I lied.

I was afraid people would think that I was stupid if I continued to say that I did not see the man’s face.  So I just pretended I did.

Whenever I look at the Moon now I still do not see a face.  If anyone asked me now about seeing a face, then I have the courage to say ‘No.”  I am no longer afraid of being called stupid.

If I knew everything, then there would be nothing left for me to learn.  Since I love learning so much, I look forward to being stupid.
