Bob Miller was taking his family for a week to a luxurious
resort in the Bahamas. Since his three children have only been
exposed to cottage vacations, he called them to inform them as to
what to expect.

“Mommy, the three of you, and myself are going for a very

the beds, and tidy the place. We will place our dirty laundry in
a bag; it will be washed, folded, and brought back to us. We

filled with toys and games.”

Little Janet, 3, clapped her hands in joy at the prospect of

Eddy, 7, had a puzzled look on his face.

“Do you have any questions Eddy?” asked Bob.

“Yes dad,” he replied. “Why are we taking mommy?”

matter, she was surrounded by interesting people and was

realize that she has distractedly pored red wine in her glass,
and has been drinking it all through the meal. And no headache!
In her joy, she lifted her glass and shouted to her husband at
the other end of the table, “honey, I don’t have a headache

The topic in a philosophy class has been whether there was a
God or not. Arguments went back and forth for a whole week.
But, this being philosophy, the matter was never settled.

On Friday, at the end of the lecture, the professor
announced that, due to personal reasons, Monday’s test was
postponed by a week. Just then, a voice was heard saying, “There
is a God!”
