Well, many of us have laughed at my “fitted sheets” episodes. This experience this morning far surpasses the fitted sheets. Are you sitting down? You need to be!
You will never, never believe what happened to this old widower today. Many widowers struggle to adjust to this thing of being single again. I still can’t believe this happened to me today. But it did! It turns out that her name is Abby.
So I am minding my own business when suddenly a lady’s voice sounding almost teasingly said, “Hello.” I stopped and turned to look over my shoulder and sure enough she was speaking to me. Again she said, “Hello” to me in such a way as to be almost flirting with me. “My goodness” I thought to myself, “No one ever flirts with me other than Karen and my Karen has been with the Lord going on seven months now. No one flirts with me” I again thought adamantly. It was awkward and yet almost humorous. I said a quick “Hello” back and turned to walk away.
Suddenly, believe it or not, she loudly whistled a wolf’s whistle at me. NO ONE. NOT EVEN KAREN has ever done a wolf whistle at me. It has never happened to me in sixty-six and a half years of life. I didn’t know what to do. I was speechless. Can you believe the audacity of this lady? The moment was truly awkward. What do you think I should have said to her?
There’s probably one more thing I should tell you friends. I am at my son and daughter-in-law’s home. Abby is their Amazon parrot! I really had you going for a few minutes, didn’t I? Were you laughing at this mystery lady’s poor eye sight or were you furious with her boldness? I’m sorry to be really bad today. Seriously, thank you for your continued prayers. I love you folks and thank the Lord for you. If you reply, don’t write about the secret of Abby’s identity, okay?
