He was getting excited spurring his flight more to north again.

Carried away by his passion, he is not aware that his flapping wings had been attached by a snowball. Thicker incresingly, and finally he fell to the ground as his body wrapped in snow. On the ground, snow on his body even more thicker until finally the sparrows could not do anything about it. He thought that his life had been ended at that time, and he was moaning while regretting his fate.

Heard the moans of the sparrows, there is a buffalo who happened to be passing and approached him. But the sparrow disappointed, why just a buffalo came to there. He also rebuked the buffalo to stay away and said in his mind, that stupid being (the buffalo) could not do something for him.

The buffalo had not much to say. He just stood there, then he urinated right on top of the sparrow. The sparrow getting angry and cursing the buffalo. However, the buffalo remained silent without saying a word. He took a step forward, and defecated right in the body of the sparrow.

Morals of this story :
In life, not everything that looks good is good, bad is bad. But it could be reversed although it looks beautiful, because the neighbor's yard that looks green is not necessarily right for us. And most importantly, good or bad appearance, should not be used as the only benchmarks. Also as when we just get enjoyment, do not forget and too desired, so we do not forget what should to do next.
