Spitting, Kicking, Humping

camel nose

Remember the cautionary tale of the camel that pokes his nose into the maiden’s tent slit?

“Oh, look at those eye lashes!  And he’s sooo soft and cuddly.  And OMG TWO humps!”

And. . .

The next thing the sweet young thing knows, she’s sharing her tent with a stinky, spitting, knobby-kneed camel.

But, wait. . .

Let’s look at this tale from another point of view.

The camel is perfectly adapted for desert life.  He can march for days across the hot sand, kick a predator in the head without even slowing his journey, withstand daytime temperatures over a hundred degrees and nights that dip down below freezing.

A camel is the warrior of the desert.

Why then, would this animal push his velvety nose into a tight, silky tent?

My guess is the maiden enticed him with sweet dates and pomegranates and her special honeyed biscuits.

So. . .

Picture this camel warrior inside the tent.  Long legs splayed as he tries to maneuver without destroying the maiden’s priceless collection of porcelain tea cups.  Blinking those big brown eyes, a silk tapestry caught on his bony head while he spits on the maidens pillows and transforms her luxurious tent to a stinky camel bed.

Here it comes. . .

The moral of the story

If you take a camel, or a warrior of any kind, into your tent, do not expect him to become a lap dog.  Be prepared for breakage and earthy smells and, oh yeah, those two humps.

If you’re a maiden who’s already let the camel inside her tent, or a warrior struggling not to destroy the cozy home in which you find yourself, you might want to find a vetcenter near you.  Vets helping vets.
