I really needed a good laugh today. So, I had to find a joke. A Sunday kind of joke.
The priest in a small Irish village loved the cock and ten hens he kept in the hen house, behind the church. But, one Saturday night, the cock went missing! The priest knew that cock fights went on in the village, so he started to question his parishioners in church, the next morning.
During Mass, he asked the congregation, “Has anybody got a cock?”
All the men stood up.“
No, no,” he said, “that wasn’t what I meant. Has anybody seen a cock?”
All the women stood up.
“No, no,” he said, “that wasn’t what I meant. Has anybody seen a cock that doesn’t belong to them?”
Half the women stood up.
“No, no,” he said, “that wasn’t what I meant. Has anybody seen MY cock?”
All the nuns, three altar boys, two priests and a goat stood up.
Well, TGIF, first and foremost! As if the last weekend wasn’t long enough. Here we go again with another four-day-no-work marathon. Not that I’m complaining, though. I just have a lot of work piled up on my desk right now, and I can’t wait to get on with these projects, already. Pardon me, but it’s how much I love what I do. 🙂
Right this moment, though… I just got done reading my friend’s latest post in nine months. About time, dude. Now, after having written two posts on excruciatingly heavy topics, I’m ready to crack some of my infamous corny jokes (my ex-wife thinks I’m the king of corn, btw, and I love it). However, Mike never misses to grab my attention by inserting profoundly weird stuff in between his paragraphs, such as… I don’t have it figured out, but it’s a peaceful place to be.
Suddenly, I forget the joke. Great!
Not to accidentally open up a new can of worms, again, I just thought I’d quickly ponder on that little nugget of a line there from ye ol Mike. It is, indeed, very nice to have peace, by choice. To not have to figure things out before you’re able to function. To not have to worry about unanswered questions. Or what other people think. To not have to know what tomorrow will bring. Or, what next year will bring, for that matter. Because you’re confident that whatever happens, and however it happens, that it’s going to be alright. But again, it’s a choice.
So, let’s enjoy today, shall we? And let tomorrow worry about itself.
