One Sunday after the church sermon was over and everyone was filing
out, we stopped to chat with our friends. My wife said “the pastor’s
sermon was really bad today.”
“Boring too!” remarked one of our gathered friends.
“The choir was just awful, they were off key the whole time” I
The rest of the group nodded in agreement as my son butted ion and said
“come, pops, I thought they were pretty good for just a quarter”.
The Amish and the Elevator
An Amish boy and his father were visiting a mall. They were
amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially two shiny, silver
walls in the mall lobby that could move apart and back together again.
The boy asked his father, “What is this father?”
The father (never having seen an elevator) responded, “Son, I have
never seen anything like this in my life, I don’t know what it is.”
While the boy and his father were watching wide-eyed, an older lady,
limping slightly with a cane, slowly walks up to the moving walls
and pressed a button. The walls opened and the lady walks between them
and into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father
watched, small circles of light with numbers above the wall light up.
They continued to watch the circles light up in the reverse direction.
The walls opened up again and a beautiful 24-year-old woman stepped
out. The father said to his son, “Go get your Mother.”
