Once there were two dolphins, one of which was greedy and the other was wise. One day, the wise dolphin said ' You should never jump too close to the sun'. The greedy dolphin said 'I bet you I could, because I am stronger than you'. With that there was a competition organised.
The wise dolphin however, did not participate, although the other dolphins did. On the day of the competition every single dolphin that was participating were getting ready, all accept the greedy dolphin. When it was ready to start the jumping, all the dolphins were nervous, with the exception of the greedy dolphin. The greedy dolphin was the last to jump, he had put himself in that position so that he could brag and tease the other dolphins that after their respective jump(s) they would lose.
When it was the greedy dolphins turn, a very unexpected thing occurred, that when he jumped he jumped extremely high. In fact so high, that he did jump passed the sun. But, sadly he didn't come back down because he had been swallowed up by the sun. All the wise dolphin could say was that he had told the greedy dolphin not to jump too close to the sun.
I think what she was trying to say don't let your pride get in the way. The greedy dolphin thought he was soooooo good he could bet every one. But the wise dolphin said don't jump to close to the sun. Almost like you tell your kids don't jump on your bed I just made it and your kids don't listen. And did the dolphin listen NO! And he payed for it. Just like when your kid gets in trouble and do time out his was just a lot bigger time out.
