A Wish

A man walking along a California beach was deep in prayer. All of a sudden he said out loud,

"Lord, please grant me one wish."

Suddenly the sky clouded above his head and in a booming
voice the Lord said,

"I will grant you this one wish."

The man said, "Could you please build a bridge to Hawaii, so I can drive over anytime I want to?"

The Lord said, "Your request is very materialistic. Think of the logistics of that kind of undertaking. The supports required to reach the bottom of the Pacific! The concrete and steel it would take! I can certainly do it, but it is hard for Me to justify your desire for worldly things. Take a little more time and think of another wish, a wish you think would honor and glorify Me."

The man thought about it for a long time. Finally he said,

"Lord, I can't find the right woman. All the women I have dated have said that I am uncaring and insensitive. I wish that I could understand women. I want to know how they feel inside, what they are thinking when they give me the silent treatment, why they cry, what they mean when they say "nothing is wrong", and how I can make a woman truly happy."

After a few minutes God said,

"You want two lanes or four on that bridge?"

I'm still wondering why, this evening, my wife groused at me for using her balsamic vinegar to make myself some stupid salad dressing...and why it matters what hangers I use to hang her shirts and blouses...fer cryin' out loud...I did the laundry...and I didn't turn them into Barbie clothes like I did her sweaters years ago.

If ya' can't pronounce it..ya' can't afford it and ya' shouldn't order it and ya' probably won't like it anyway. (Rule of thumb when reading a restaurant menu) Happy

... stated balsamics from $6 to $600! I didn't see that latter at the link, but I have seen some pricey ones at a gourmet shop we have gone to once or twice with the Sis in Philly.

Maybe my palate is too "untrained" -- but I've yet to taste the difference between olive oils by price within a particular type (extra virgin vs. virgin or type of olive, etc.) and so far all balsamics I've ever had seem to taste alike. To be fair, I haven't tasted many on the high end, but what you don't know you can't miss! Wink
