Joke About it Hard Enough and it Will Come True


Last night I had some teachers over for dinner. Some of them were invited to a dinner party on Sunday afternoon. I joked about calling the Board of Ed. member who is hosting the party to try and finagle an invite.

This afternoon, I noticed that same person had called my cell phone. I rang him back and… you guessed it… he wanted to invite me to the party. I’ll have to think about other things I want and joke about them.

    so how did the dinner party go that you ‘crashed’? did they realize that you were joking, or maybe that didn’t translate…

    Erik, thanks for the comment. It is always nice to know folks are reading. The teachers that were here when I was joking about weaseling in were all Americans. Not much chance that they misunderstood that I was joking, but I’m sure they’ll tease me about it anyhow.

    The party was great. The administrator’s family was very kind. We had a tremendous supply of different foods for the BBQ. And they gave us early harvest rice from his father’s fields.
