Beware of apples, 2.

June 8, 2011

 

Do you know the story of William Tell? I remember being told it as a child, but I could only tell you the main points. Thank goodness for Wiki. Apparently William Tell didn’t bow to a hat on a pole, erected by Austrian invaders of Switzerland, and he was arrested and forced to shoot an apple off the head of his son. He succeeded – William S Burroughs wasn’t so great a marksman when he shot the apple on top of his wife Joan‘s head.

    And the story continues that he had taken two arrows in preparation and when asked why, he replied the second arrow was for you if I missed. The moral of the story is be prepared.
