Last night, my friend called me at 5:00 and asked me if I wanted to go see the stage version of Dirty Dancing that very night at 7:30. She had scored two free tickets. And I went! This was unbelievably spontaneous of me. I had had big plans to watch The Amazing Race and pay bills, but I went ANYWAY. I am wild and crazy!
Anyway, here is a story about my nephew. I forget what his nickname is. Elfin Nephew maybe? At any rate, he is five, and after finishing the God Blesses in his nightly prayers, he asked his mom, what a blessing is. "It's all the good things that God gives us like family and food and a warm bed to sleep in," she replied.
He considered this for a moment, and then said, "Well, he didn't give me the right kind of bed. It's small and it has a big lump in it."
