Jokes I Like to Tell
One time a man and his wife were asleep in bed, and they were rudely awakened at three in the morning by someone pounding on their front door, and loudly.
The husband got up, staggered to the door, and opened it. A stranger was standing there, as drunk as someone who is still upright could still be. He was drunk and he was soaking wet, as the rain was pounding down.
“Hey, man,” the drunk asked. “Could you give me a push?”
The husband lost his temper, and said there was not a chance of that, and that he was too drunk to drive, and that he should walk home. With that, he slammed the door and went back to bed.
His wife asked him, when he got back, “What was that?”
“Nothing but some drunk guy wanting a push,” the husband answered.
“Did you help him?” she asked.
“Well, no,” he said. “He’s too drunk to drive, it is three in the morning, and it is pouring rain out. Do you really think differently?”
“Well, I sort of do. Remember that time a few months ago when we broke down, and the weather was really bad? And those two guys stopped and helped us? It was a life saver—couldn’t you do something to help him?”
With that, the husband threw on some clothes, a little out of sorts, and huffed down the stairs. Standing on the front porch, in the pouring rain, he called out, “Hello? You still here?”
The answer came back, faintly, “Yes!”
“Do you still need a push?” the husband asked.
“Yes, please!” was the answer from the dark.
“Where are you then?” the husband asked, a little exasperated by this point.
“Over here in the side yard. On the swing.”
Dominion or Ruin
This book is a series of observations and sketches about many different aspects of ordinary life, considered in the light of our commitment to “all of Christ for all of life.” Over the course of three years I sent these out as weekly meditations to the saints of Christ Church, who bore this additional trial with their usual fortitude.
