Urho Urho galloped up the hill in the moonlight with his heart pounding and breathing hard, and the moon in his eyes. He stopped at the top, tilted a little flask quickly, and continued loping down the hill toward the village sleeping in the moonlight. Urho loved to jog under the full moon and have a swig every time he stopped to rest. He used to pretend he was a horse, and snort and whinny after the flask was empty. William R. Lamppa of Embarrass
