I'm Her Daddy

I am very sorry for the been missing for a minute and thank you guys for all your comments and prayers as well.

I actually typed a post up while I was at the airport waiting for my flight back to Houston from Tampa on thursday,but I lost the post while trying to upload it cos the website started having problems.

Anyway,my week has been kinda busy with different things.I was up to my neck with work and also had to fly down to Tampa on wednesday for an interview on thursday morning.The company decided to fly me down to Tampa after 2 gruelsome phone interviews which lasted like an hour each and the face-2-face interview lasted another 2 hours,felt like I was been interrogated by the POPO.I got to Tampa around 7pm,got the rental car and one of my friends that stays in Tampa met up with me and we got lost a couple of times before we found my hotel.I got to the hotel and I ended up having to pay for the room cos the person that was suppose to take care of it at the company forgot(Just remembered I was suppose to fax a copy of the receipt to the person to refund me).I decided to drive by the company that night so that it would be easy for me to locate it in the morning,but gave up after driving for over an hour and could not figure out where the place was.I was able to locate the place in time for the interview in the morning sha.

One of my very close friend got married this saturday and I was the bestman,so I had to go straight from the airport to his engagement when I got back to Houston on thursday and we also had the Bachelor's eve bash after the engagement.Woke up late on friday cos I did not get home till like 5am from the Bachelor's eve party.I had to run a couple of errands and ended up missing the wedding rehasals and later went with the groom and friends that were in town from Nigeria,London,Canada and all over the US for the wedding.We had fun catching up cos I have not seen a lot of the said friends in a while and we finally ended up in Dennis restaurant around 5am and left around 6.30am after eating almost all the wings they have at the restaurant.

I woke up around 11am on saturday and had to do last minute running around for the wedding.All the groomsmen met at the grooms house and went to the church from there.The church service was lovely,the reception and the owanbe party was off the chain and I had to give the toast as well.

I think I need to go to sleep now cos I so need to go..but am not going to leave without a joke.



Snow Plow

It was snowing heavily and blowing to the point that visibility was almost zero when Lena got off work. She made her way to her car and wondered how she was going to make it home.

She sat in her car while it warmed up and thought about her situation. She remembered a friend's advice that if she got caught in a blizzard, she should wait for a snow plow to come by and follow it. That way she would not get stuck in a snow drift. This made Lena feel much better and sure enough in a little while, a snow plow went by, and she started to follow it. As she followed the snow plow, she was feeling very smug as they continued, and she was not having any problem with the blizzard conditions.

After quite sometime had passed, she was somewhat surprised when the snow plow stopped and the driver got out and came back to her car and signaled her to roll down her window. The snow plow driver wanted to know if she was all right, as she had been following him for a long time.

She said that she was fine and told him of the advice she'd received to follow a snow plow when caught in a blizzard.

The driver replied that it was OK with him, and she could continue if she wanted...but he was done with the Wal-Mart parking lot and was going over to Kmart next.



The Church Organist

Miss Beatrice, the church organist, was in her eighties and had never been married. She was admired for her sweetness and kindness to all.

One afternoon the pastor came to call on her and she showed him into her quaint sitting room. She invited him to have a seat while she prepared tea.

As he sat facing her old Hammond organ, the young minister noticed a cut-glass bowl sitting on top of it. The bowl was filled with water, and in the water floated, of all things, a condom! When she returned with tea and scones, they began to chat.

The pastor tried to stifle his curiosity about the bowl of water and its strange floater, but soon it got the better of him and He could no longer resist. "Miss Beatrice", he said, "I wonder if you would tell me about this?" pointing to the bowl.

"Oh, yes," she replied, "Isn't it wonderful? I was walking through the Park a few months ago and I found this little package on the ground. The directions said to place it on the organ, keep it wet and that it would

prevent the spread of disease. And wouldn't you know, I haven't had the flu all winter."
