Subject: [TTFF] Lightning never strikes twice......
Far away in the tropical waters of the Caribbean two prawns were swimming
around in the sea - one called Justin and the other called Christian.
The prawns were constantly being harassed and threatened by sharks that
patrolled the area.
Finally one day during a tropical storm, Justin said to Christian, "I'm
bored and frustrated at being a prawn, I wish I was a shark, then I wouldn't
have any worries about being eaten".
As Justin had his mind firmly on becoming a predator, a flash of lightning
hit the water and, lo and behold, Justin turned into a shark.
Horrified, Christian immediately swam away, afraid of being eaten by his old
Time went on (as it invariably does...) and Justin found himself becoming
bored and lonely as a shark.
All his old mates simply swam away whenever he came close to them. Justin

During the next tropical storm, Justin figured that the same lightning force
could change him back into a prawn.
Lightning never strikes twice except in stories like these, but while he was
thinking of being a prawn, a flash of lightning struck the water next to him

With tears of joy in his tiny little eyes, Justin swam back to his friends
and bought them all a cocktail. (It gets worse... )
Looking around the gathering at the reef, he searched for his old pal.
"Where's Christian?" he asked.
"He's at home, distraught that his best friend changed sides to the enemy
and became a shark", came the reply.
Eager to put things right again and end the mutual pain and torture, he set
off to Christian's house.
As he opened the coral gate, the memories came flooding back.
He banged on the door and shouted, "It's me, Justin, your old friend, come
out and see me again."
Christian replied, "No way, man, you'll eat me. You're a shark, the enemy,
and I'll not be tricked."
Justin cried back " No I'm not. That was the old me. I've changed..." ..
"I'm a prawn again Christian".......
