So I'm at the grocery store, in the chekout line. And I notice that the lady behind me had a box of strawberries on the conveyor belt - in fact, they were the first thing she put on, which meant they were right next to the divider. That's when I realized that I had wanted strawberries for the last few days, but had FORGOTTEN to put any in my cart. And it was too late to change, because there were obviously people in line behind me - and I'm lazy. But this woman is busy prattling away on her phone, and supervising her two unruly offspring, so I realized that all I had to do was move the divider over a little, and the strawberries would be on my side - and she'd probably never notice (and even if she did, it could easily look like a mistake). Oooooh - it was so tempting, but I resisted, and let her keep her delicious strawberries.

Then, about an hour later, I'm out in the garage, spreading some putty/glaze on the car (with the garage doors open for ventilation, so I don't get too much cancer) and the neighboor wife from across the street comes over and gives me some homemade strawberry shortcake, with fresh strawberries and awesome ice cream! (she'd made too much, and their kid couldn't eat it all).

Woo-hoo. God pats me on the back and says "good boy, DK-Prof"

Do I have permission to paste this to a light-hearted prayer email thread?

Absolutely - although it's a little shameful for me to admit that I CONSIDERED taking the lady's strawberries - but since the internet is pretty anonymous, feel free to repost it.

You actually thought about stealing a mother's strawberies? The horror....

I'm surprised you're not saying much more about the neighbor wife.

The neighbors across the street are actually really nice, and I know them quite well - every once in a while they feel pity for me because I live by myself and have me over for dinner. The husband has been really helpful with the Mustang (he used to have one himself when he was younger) and their kids are great.



So, no penthouse letter about the neighbor's wife here

Well, I don't believe that I can find any scriptual basis for this issue.

But good on you anyway.

I love strawberry short cake.

Wow, that was a speedy resolution and equalization of the karmic balance. I have waited years in the past for that kind of thing.

Good on you, mijnheer!

As I have very received very little good fortune in reflection of all of the good deeds I have done, I know it is all being placed in an savings account and one day, very soon, I will be rewarded with there being no more room in hell.

Peace be with you.

You are a good boy.
You get two gold stars.

You should have stopped at the local corner store and got you a bottle of strawberry hill Boones farm. Then drank it.

Good job, DK. It's nice when doing the right thing pays off in the short term as well as the long term.


Luke 18:29-30 KJV
(29) And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God's sake,
(30) Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting.
