The Cure, part 2

I was feeling down. I went for a walk to try and get out of it.

I came upon a police officer sitting on a horse. The horse said, “Things got you down?”

I said, “Yeah.”

The horse said, “Sometimes when I feel sad, I’ll think about when I was a young colt running free across the open terrain of North Dakota. I’d race with the other young colts. The wind was at my back. I felt like a living lightening bolt.”

I said, “You’ve never lived outside captivity have you?”

The horse said, “No, but it’s never stopped my imagination.”

I said, “I’m feeling better. I always get that way when I talk with animals.”
