Today’s Funny

18 Nov

A recent bride called her mother one evening in tears.

“Oh, Mom, I tried to make Grandma’s meat loaf for dinner tonight, and it’s just awful! I followed the recipe exactly, and I know I have the recipe right because it’s the one you gave me. But it just didn’t come out right, and I’m so upset. I wanted this to be so special for George because he loves meat loaf. What could have gone wrong?”

Her mother replied soothingly, “Well, dear, let’s go through the recipe. You read it out loud and tell me exactly what you did at each step, and together we’ll figure it out.”

“Okay,” the bride sniffled. “Well, it starts out, ‘Take fifty cents worth of ground beef’…”

How do I follow this funny? I could write about the economy, but we ALL know its in the tanker. I could write about times changing, but that would be too close to home.

How about this thought … Sometimes we have to let go of the literal and grasp the bigger picture. Had that poor bride really THOUGHT about what amount fifty cents worth of ground beef would’ve been in her grandmother’s early days she would’ve had no problem with that recipe.

What part of the big picture do YOU not see? Are you wise enough to back up and see things for what they really are?? Think about it!
