On the Lighter Side – 2009
A small child walked daily to and from school. Though the weather one morning was questionable and clouds were forming, this child made the daily trek to the elementary school.
As the day progressed, the winds whipped up, along with thunder and lightning.
The mother was worried that her child would be frightened walking back home from school, and she herself feared the electrical storm might harm her child.
Following the roar of the thunder, lightning would cut through the sky like a flaming sword. Being concerned, the mother got into her car and drove along the route to her child’s school. Soon she saw her small child walking along, but at each flash of lightning, the child would stop, look up at the sky and smile.
One followed another, each time with her child stopping, looking at the streak of light and smiling. Finally, the mother called and asked, “What are you doing!”
Her child answered, “I’m smiling for God. He keeps taking pictures of me.”
Three retirees, each with a hearing loss, were taking a walk one fine March day.
One remarked to the other, “Windy, ain’t it?”
“No,” the second man replied, “It’s Thursday.”
And the third man chimed in, “So am I. Let’s have a Pepsi.”
