Optimism

A generous bounty was once offered for wolves in the U.S. state of Montana after a number of local animals had been mauled to death. Two guys, Ted and Jake, decided to go out hunting the wolves to make some money.  After a futile search one day, they set up camp for the night, exhausted and dejected, but hopeful that tomorrow’s work would be more fruitful.

Jake woke early in the morning, however, to find that they were completely surrounded by a pack of snarling wolves, with their teeth bared and eyes flaring. He turned to his friend and shook him hard, scarcely able  to contain his excitement, as he shouted, “Ted, wake up. We’re gonna be rich!”
