TES, my dear wife has at times craved things during her pregnancy… the other day… donuts. I dutifully went to Albertson’s… a block away and found the donut section.
You would think after 21 years together I would remember her favorite donuts… I did sort of but made a call just in case.
Mind you I am standing in front of the case of donuts…
“What kind do you like again?”
"Chocolate cake or those cinnamon twist… but a maple bar will do if they don’t have any of those…”
As we talked I notice a woman who was looking at the donuts… I politely moved back so she could get what she wanted…
“There are 2 chocolate cake ones left… I will get one as soon as the lady in front of me moves…” as I was saying this the lady… who had to have heard me talking to TES picked up not one but both of the chocolate cake donuts… and a cinnamon twist…(there where quite a few of those).
She then without acknowledgement turned and walked passed me…

All I could do was laugh with TES still on the phone.


Then the other day I was at Wally World returning something… standing in one of those take a number lines… I saw a little old lady push her cart right up to the counter… not taking a number…. Boy that steams me. I saw it was my turn and walked right in front of the little old lady… she was not getting the best of me…and returned my things… she glared at me like I spit in her face… I smiled and walked off…


Like 23: 33. When they came to the place called the Skull, there they crucified him, along with the criminals--one on his right, the other on his left.
34. Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing." And they divided up his clothes by casting lots.
35. The people stood watching, and the rulers even sneered at him. They said, "He saved others; let him save himself if he is the Christ of God, the Chosen One." (NIV)
