Are you a wild boar, or a fox?

More than 2,600 years ago, a Greek guy called Aesop started telling stories with amazing life lessons at the end.

Most of them were about animals. He told tales of ants and grasshoppers, lions and mice, and you’ve already heard the one with the tortoise and the hare, right?

But the story we love most at Umpire, is the one about the Wild Boar and the Fox...

One day, a fox was in the forest looking for food, when he saw a wild boar rubbing his tusks against the trunk of a tree. “There are no hunters out today, Mr Boar, so why are you doing that?” asked the Fox.

The Wild Boar replied: “If I don't do it now, I might not get time to sharpen my tusks when I need them the most."

It’s a magical lesson about always being prepared for the bad times to come.

Why do we love that story so much?

P.S. If you said you’d be a fox, it’s probably best to call the wild boar when anything bad happens.
