Ice Cream

by Shirley

This was sent to me by a co-worker and I knew some of you would enjoy it.

Last week, I took my grand-children to a restaurant.
My six-year-old grand-son asked if he could say grace.
As we bowed our heads he said, "God is good, God is great. Thank you for the
food, and I would even thank you more if Nana gets us ice cream for dessert. And
liberty and justice for all! Amen!"
Along with the laughter from the other customers nearby, I heard a woman remark,
"That's what's wrong with this country. Kids today don't even know how to pray.
Asking God for ice cream! Why, I never!"
Hearing this, my grand-son burst into tears and asked me, "Did I do it wrong? Is
God mad at me?"
As I held him and assured him that he had done a terrific job, and God was
certainly not mad at him, an elderly gentleman approached the table.
He winked at my grand-son and said, "I happen to know that God thought that was
a great prayer."
"Really?" my grand-son asked.
"Cross my heart," the man replied.
Then, in a theatrical whisper, he added (indicating the woman whose remark had
started this whole thing), "Too bad she never asks God for ice cream. A little
ice cream is good for the soul sometimes."
Naturally, I bought my grand-children ice cream at the end of the meal. My
grand-son stared at his for a moment, and then did something I will remember the
rest of my life.
He picked up his sundae and, without a word, walked over and placed it in front
of the woman. With a big smile he told her, "Here, this is for you. Shove it up
your ass you grouchy old bitch! "

Hi TINA, MICHAEL AND SHIRLEY. How are you all feeling today? Tina, I hope you are better than yesterday. That crown must be too heavy for your head.

Well, I woke up to 14" of snow and I am not happy about it. I had some plans today and now since it is still snowing....I had to cancel. They are saying the roads are terrible. I drove home in it last night and was very scared not being able to see where I was driving. I guess being retired has me out of the habit of driving in the blizzards (and/or I'm just plain getting old).

SHIRLEY, I didn't see that punch line coming on that story. I thought the little guy was being so sweet to the lady..ha! fooled me.

Tina You're even prettier with your new crown. I hope you're feeling better.

Just_Lin said...

Shirley Thanks for the blog. I was surprised at the ending.

Michael Is that you playing Santa?

Just_Lin said...

Dianne I'm glad you stayed home and stayed safe. I was out today and was too annoyed to get any real shopping done and I don't have to deal with blizzards. I had to get some blood drawn and manaaged that but the parking was horrible as far as shopping for presents. Plus, I'm really screwed because I need a couple more gifts and several stocking stuffers and I don't have any ideas in mind at all. Agh!

Lol @ Tina's crown being to heavy for her head.
