Well howdy there! Thanks for stopping by. Let’s get started.
Let deeds match words. Plautus
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 2 Corinthians 12:9
Raise your hand if this has ever happened to you. Please tell me I’m not one of the very few but that I’m one of many.
When Albert Einstein was making the rounds of the speaker’s circuit, he usually found himself eagerly longing to get back to his laboratory work. One night as they were driving to yet another dinner, Einstein mentioned to his chauffeur (a man who somewhat resembled Einstein in looks & manner) that he was tired of speechmaking.
“I have an idea, boss,” his chauffeur said. “I’ve heard you give this speech so many times, I’ll bet I could give it for you.”
Einstein laughed loudly and said, “Why not? Let’s do it!”
When they arrived at the dinner, Einstein donned the chauffeur’s cap and jacket and sat in the back of the room. The chauffeur gave a beautiful rendition of Einstein’s speech and even answered a few questions expertly.
Then a supremely pompous professor asked an extremely esoteric question about antimatter formation, digressing here and there to let everyone in the audience know that he was nobody’s fool.
Without missing a beat, the chauffeur fixed the professor with a steely stare and said, “Sir, the answer to that question is so simple that I will let my chauffeur, who is sitting in the back, answer it for me.”
This guy has 6,000 barbie dolls. A man. With a pink room. Of Barbie dolls. What more do you need to know? I don’t know…I guess it’s better than collecting Ken dolls…? I don’t know.
I love stories like this. Okay, so a police officer ended up in some trouble while trying to make an arrest. So this homeless guy steps in to help. The police for now is his personal guard. I mean, like, they keep an eye on him that he always has shelter. Cool. Be kinda awkward if they ever have to arrest him…
Have a great day!
