Toward the end of last week, the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage presented me with a rather fascinating proposition. My attitude in life has always been, when she speaks I will at least listen.
I want you to know I am not easily propositioned. I am very suspicious of anything that has the appearance of being good for me. I do not believe everything I hear or see. I guess I am just a skeptic.
A telemarketer recently called with the news that the government had randomly chosen my name to receive $8400. If this was the government calling me, it would not be to give me $8400 but to solicit $8400 in taxes.
Like my father used to say, "Son, there ain't no free lunches." He was right.
So when my wife propositioned me, I was rather skeptical.
"How would you like to go with us to the kid's basketball game on Friday night?"
So, I thought to myself, where is the catch? Somewhere along the line in this proposition is a catch. Now, where was it?
Did you know you can get the Pasadena Journal weekly print publication for more news and information?
