A guy was hitchhiking on a very dark night in the middle of a downpour so powerful he could hardly see a few feet ahead.
Suddenly, a car slowly came toward him and stopped.
Blinded by the rain and darkness, he jumped into the back seat, closed the door and then realized there was nobody behind the wheel! The car started moving slowly and then headed straight toward a curve. Scared to death, he started to pray, begging for his life.
In a long-distance race, it is important to pace yourself. I joined the track team in high school and trained to run 800 meters—about half a mile. On the day of an important track meet, I was ready to go.
This was a special day because my girlfriend was in the stands. I confess, I had never spoken to her, but I wished she was my girlfriend. And winning this race might have attracted her attention and her affection.
My unique golf stance
I love the game of golf, but lately my golf ball had become a water-seeking missile, so I engaged the services of a golf pro to help me keep the ball in the fairway.
The first ball I hit arced into a lake to the right of the fairway.
“You’re too stiff,” the pro said. “Wiggle before you swing. It will relax you.”
So I wiggled and hit a beautiful soaring shot further than I had ever hit a ball before…
On the way to church my children would sit in the back seat picking fights over senseless things.
“This is my side of the car!” one would yell. “You are breathing on my side of the car!”
“She’s looking at me!” the other would counter.
You are sound asleep. I’m talking about a rip snorting, pillow-drooling, dead-to-the-world sleep. Your alarm clock is set to go off at 5 a.m. At precisely 4:59, the clock makes a little pre alarm click sound and your eyes fly wide open.
Why does it do this? Maybe the alarm has its own alarm to wake it up so it can wake us up! All I know is that a few seconds before the alarm goes off, it makes that click sound in joyful anticipation of destroying your rest.
