RESPONSE TO SITUATIONS

A woman rolled an elderly man in a wheelchair into the Doctor’s waiting room and went to the receptionist’s desk. After a few moments a little boy slipped off his mother’s lap and walked over and placed his hand on the arm of the elderly man and said, “I know how you feel. My mom makes me ride in the stroller too.”

The Grandmother of eight-year-old Carolyn wistfully said, “In ten years you’ll want to be with your friends and won’t go walking, biking, and swimming with me like you do now.” Carolyn shrugged “In ten years you’ll be too old to do all those things anyway.”

A young son said to his father, “Dad, I know how babies come from mommies’ tummies, but how do they get there in the first place?” After the father hemmed and hawed awhile, the young son finally spoke up in disgust, “You don’t have to make up something, Dad. It’s okay if you don’t know the answer.”

A father was being deployed by the Army to Iraq. He sat his eight-year-ole son down and broke the news to him. He said, “ I’m going to Iraq.” “Why?” the son asked. “Don’t you know there is a war going on over there?”

Then there was a man who sat at the graveside of his recently deceased wife when there was a massive clap of thunder, followed by a tremendous bolt of lightning, accompanied by even more thunder. He calmly said, “Well, she’s there.”
