She’s Got My Number

I had this procedure once—all men know the procedure I’m referring to—and as I was sitting on the bed, attempting to regain my senses—not to mention my dignity—the nurse came bouncing in (don’t you just hate it when they bounce in?) and gave me a list of things I could NOT do. My eyes bugged out when I came to the last thing on the list; No Alcoholic Beverages.

“Not even ONE beer?”

She grinned, shrugged. “Oh, ONE beer would probably be okay.”

“Could you put that in writing?”

Still grinning, she jotted it on a pad, tore off the page, handed it to me, then left the room, chuckling. I examined it;

Using the pen on the bedside table, I made a minor adjustment then put the note in my shirt pocket.

On the way home I said, “You mind stopping at the store, so I can get a six-pack.

“You’re not supposed to drink today.”

I held the note up. “That’s not what the nurse said.”

She shot me “the look”; you know… the one that says, “I trust you and believe everything you say, dear.

At the next red light, she said, “Let me see it.”

She looked at it, handed it back to me. “Nice try, Charlie.”

Now That’s Tall!

In one of my previous blog offerings, Look, Boys, No Eyebrows, I mentioned the Ashford Manor  Restaurant where Billy and Wesley’s mom worked, waiting tables. On occasion, I would go down there to get dinner for me and the boys, and bring it home. That idea may have generated from the oven incident in the previously mentioned story.

Working Weekends!

Last summer, I decided to publish a book of daily devotionals, Be Still…. and know that I am God. Actually, I prefer to call them daily encouragements, because my intent, when I share them, is to encourage folks. I’m not a preacher or Bible scholar, so the messages I write may not be accurate in the eyes of some, but that is exactly why I do it. I think there are lots of people who, like me, don’t want to be preached at, but want to know that everything is, somehow, going to be alright. That very thing—everything is going to be (and is) alright—is what I try to convey to my readers (as well as myself). We all need encouragement, and I’m just trying to help out where I can.
