Ok, I obviously have three quite unrelated stories today.
The first is a schoolhouse rock story:
During breakfast, child A ripped open his breakfast package and food flew everywhere. I told him he must not know his own strength and he needs to be more careful. “I didn’t do that. God made me. He controls me!” to which child B says, “He doesn’t control me! Look! I can walk backwards.” Child A shakes his head and said, “No, He is still controlling you.” (I think it is always good to start your friday with a little theological debate. Especially if you are five years old).
The second is a driving story:
Last night I had a scary driving experience. The car in front of me started swerving. And I don’t meet a little. It was like it was driving in letter Zs, across multiple lanes. I had to slam on my brakes, and then was SO thankful that there was nobody close behind me. The car eventually drove straight across three lanes of traffic, cutting off a bus (seriously he missed being hit by a city bus by mere inches) and stopping under and overpass, on the shoulder, perpendicular to traffic. Scary! Thank you Jesus that nobody got hurt. That could have been a crazy multiple car accident.
The third is a baseball related story.
I saw this video on 22 Words:
I told my brother that I want him to try this, hoping for the same result (being picked up by an outfielder and carried to security). I need to share his response with you, because my brother is hilarious.
You mean hope I get carried off by a player? I’m going to do it when the visitors are in the field, hopefully the headlines read: “Delmon Young strains his back while attempting to carry a 6’5 man off of the field friday night. Looks like he’ll be out for at least 2-3 weeks. 6’5 mystery man then goes on to be hired by the twins” “also, this just in, newspaper has extrememly long headline talking about delmon young”
