The flying Car:
An angel appears at a faculty meeting and tells the dean that in return for his unselfish and exemplary behavior, the Lord will reward him with his choice of infinite wealth, infinite wisdom, or infinite beauty.
Without hesitating, the dean selects infinite wisdom.
“Done!” says the angel, and disappears in a cloud of smoke and a bolt of lightning.
Now, all heads turn toward the dean, who sits surrounded by a faint halo of light. At length, one of his colleagues whispers,
The dean sighs and says, “I should have taken the money.”
Do you get it? I sat after reading that joke and it finally hit me. That New Wisdom told the dean, wisdom is personal. Because in reality it is hard to get someone to listen. With infinite wealth he could build colleges and spread intelligence.
I know it is a joke and not reality!
BUT, but have you ever been very good at some trade, hobby, personal skill, etc. and try to honestly impart that knowledge to someone who ‘Already knows everything?’
Like Sherry, I know some of you that have ‘typed’ at your jobs; you probably remember when a few documents you typed could contain NO ‘corrections,’ i.e. no correction tape nor white-out. I cannot imagine being THAT GOOD on a typewriter. When I first started dealing with attorneys an error on a document meant 30 minutes while it was retyped. Typists today have no idea what a GOD_SENT word processors are.
(I really did not search these files often, but I did do it.)
Our attorney now, Vickie Whit-----, will ask, “Do I need to add another name to the deed or document if so, it will only take a second.” We have made changes and never delayed a closing. Not to mention printing it in as many colors as you like!!!
Actually the word processor IS Amazing, at least for those who remember typewriters WITH the carbon paper, correction paper and that all important WHITE-OUT. I have known clerks who had to type 4 pages with carbon between and fix errors on all copies
At times we sorta forget that some science is ALMOST a miracle.
But THE REAL Miracle was over 2000 years ago and lay in a manger.
Vickie is an amazing attorney. She is wise and witty. Her ‘closings’ were never a drag nor boring. I once asked her if I could bring Granddaughter Sherece to a closing so she could see a ‘FEMALE’ at work at a profession. I did and Sherece even enjoyed the closing. Sherece has followed in her mother’s footsteps and is doing well in import/export.
