Standup Bucket List

Tonight I will check an item off of my bucket list. I will try my hand at standup comedy. I don’t know if I’ll be funny or not. I know I am funny looking, but I am not sure that really counts for much. I have always tried to be humorous in this column, and in my sermons.

I mindlessly folded the various pieces of clothing from the basket, and then put everything away. I even matched up all of the socks, a fate worse than death. I breathed a sigh of relief as I matched the last two socks. “There,” I thought, “my debt is paid.” Continue reading Doing The Laundry

Marriage Reality

He stands at the front of the church in a rented tuxedo, breathlessly waiting for his blushing bride to walk down the aisle. As he stand there in shoes that pinch, the underwear he is wearing is the only clothing that belongs to him, and all he can think about is how happy they are going to be.

She stands in the foyer of the church, dressed in the prettiest wedding gown she could find. Her father grabs her by the elbow and says, “Are you ready, Honey?” She tearfully nods, and begins the walk down the aisle to her new life. Continue reading Marriage Reality
