Donkeys get depressed sometimes, especially if they are left alone for too long. Like humans donkeys must also have companionship. Eeyore is a donkey, and as we all know he was quite depressed, and sometimes he lacked the will to live.
Tonight Donkey is a bit depressed, she watched a movie and it sucked the will to live right out of her. This is the movie,
Now, it wasn’t a bad movie, but it was quite sad, and it made Donkey very sad. The worse part for Donkey might have been the scene where hungry people were eating live horse meat. As in the horse was alive when they cut the meat off. Donkey tried to put her head in the oven but I pointed out to her that is an electric oven and not gas. Don’t get all Sylvia Plath on us Donkey! It was just a movie. Okay, the bad stuff in it really happened, but don’t worry Donkey, Sakis is going to prepare an emergency food supply for you in a hole in the garden, just in case!
Cheer up Donkey!
Sakis has recovered from a night of wine, dance and donkeying around but Donkey has gone AWOL.
What has Donkey been up to while Sakis rests? Let’s check in with him, Oh, no! Donkey! It that even legal in your village? And where did you get the massive bong collection? Donkey, you better hide all of this from Sakis, but first you better roll in the hay to hide the smell or Sakis will know something is amiss.
Today is Sakis’ name day, it is a special day in Greece when all the little boys and girls celebrate the saint associated with their name. Shhhhh be very quiet Donkey has gone out to buy a special gift for Sakis. Donkey, I really hope you are not over at the tavern buying more wine, remember what happened yesterday? If you and Sakis keep drinking so much wine AA will have to come and visit, and no, not American Airlines.
Oh, dear, it seems that Sakis too has suffered from drinking too much wine. Sakis has suffered so much, he has faded away into a pencil drawing. Is he wearing Donkey’s mask? Well, hopefully by tomorrow Sakis and the Donkey will feel better and have learned a lesson about drinking too much on an empty stomach. Oh, Sakis and Donkey, when drinking wine you must eat more than just nuts and cashews!
The day after the god of all god’s, Zeus, attempted to lure away Donkey away from Sakis, both Sakis and Donkey decided to celebrate.
Donkey is suffering because she drank too much wine, notice her red nose. Donkey loves nuts and as always Sakis found nuts for Donkey. Donkey tried to write a note to Sakis, saying, I love you Sakis, and even though Donkey does not have opposable thumbs she did a pretty good job of writing the note. Poor Donkey, I hope she feels better soon.
In the beginning a small boy called Sakis had a donkey called Argiro. They lived in a happy village on a lovely island in Greece.
Sakis was happy, he had a donkey and the sun shone brightly on them both. But one day, when they frolicked in the field doing donkey things and boy things the great and most powerful god noticed them. Zeus was powerful, but he was jealous and he didn’t like to see a human have more fun than he did.
Zeus was perturbed. No, wait, that is not the right word, he was really pissed off. Here was a boy on one of his, Zeus’, islands having fun and not paying enough attention to Zeus the powerful god. The boy was giving all of his attention to his donkey.
One day, Zeus came to Sakis’ village and tried to lure , the donkey away from Sakis, but Argiro would not go. They don’t call donkeys stubborn for no reason. Donkey was Sakis’ friend and refused to leave him. Zeus tried many tricks to lure away the donkey. He tried carrots, hay, and even figs, but Argiro loved Sakis and refused to leave him and go with Zeus.
Zeus was angry.
Sakis and Donkey are both very private people. Well, Okay the Donkey is not really a person and to be honest we already know what he looks like. However, the grown up Sakis, who was once the adventurous boy of Sakis and the Donkey, is now a grown up and he asked that we respect his privacy. In keeping with his wishes we have disguised both Sakis and the Donkey.
sometimes the boy will have other animals but he had a deep close connection to his donkey and we will follow him as he and his donkey have many adventures.
This is Donkey. Donkey’s name is Argiro
