I laughed aloud when I found this story yesterday and I just had to share it with you. Shared joy is a double joy!
Laughter is the best medicine, as they say – and I tend to agree with this cliche. In fact, I’ve actually heard scientists claim that laughing well and often leads to a longer life, and I have no problem believing it is true. In any case, here is the story!
A teenage boy had just passed his driving test and inquired of his father as to when they could discuss his use of the car.
The dad said he’d make a deal with his son:
“You bring your grades up from a C to a B average, study your Bible a little, and get your hair cut. Then we’ll talk about the car.”
The boy thought about that for a moment, decided he’d settle for the offer, and they agreed on it.
After six weeks his father said, “Son, you’ve brought your grades up and I’ve observed that you have been studying your Bible, but I’m disappointed you haven’t had your hair cut.”
The boy said, ”You know, Dad, I’ve been thinking about that, and I’ve noticed in my studies of the Bible that Samson had long hair, John the Baptist had long hair, Moses had long hair, and there’s even strong evidence that Jesus had long hair.”
To this, his father replied, “Did you also notice that they walked everywhere they went?”
Mom Suspected There Was Something Going Between Her Son And His Roommate.
A mother visits her son for dinner, who lives with a girl roommate. During the course of the meal, his mother could not help but notice how pretty his roommate was. She had long suspected a relationship between the two and this had only made her more curious…
Over the course of the evening, as she watched the two interact, she began to wonder if there was more between him and his roommate than met the eye. Reading his mom’s thoughts, he volunteered, “I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you, we are just roommates.”
About a week later, his roommate came up to him and said, “Ever since your mother came to dinner, I could not find the silver plate. You don’t suppose she took it, do you?”
He said, ”Well, I doubt it, but I’ll email her, just to be sure.” He sat down and wrote :
I’m not saying that you ‘did’ take the silver plate from my house, I’m not saying that you ‘did not’ take the silver plate. But the fact remains that it has been missing ever since you were here for dinner.
Love, your son.
Several days later, he received an email from his Mother which read:
I’m not saying that you ‘do’ sleep with your roommate, and I’m not saying that you ‘do not’ sleep with her. But the fact remains that if she was sleeping in her OWN bed, she would have found the silver plate by now, under her pillow.
Share if you laughed !!
