Subjects for a Date

BY: SusanD


A boy is about to go on his first date, and is nervous about what to talk about. He asks his father for advice.

The father replies: "My son, there are three subjects that always work. These are food, family, and philosophy."

The boy picks up his date and they go to a soda fountain. Ice cream sodas in front of them, they stare at each other for a long time, as the boy's nervousness builds.

He remembers his father's advice, and chooses the first topic.

He asks the girl: "Do you like spinach?" She says "No," and the silence returns.

After a few more uncomfortable minutes, the boy thinks of his father's suggestion and turns to the second item on the list. He asks, "Do you have a brother?" Again, the girl says "No" and there is silence once again.

The boy then plays his last card. He thinks of his father's advice and asks the girl the following question: "If you had a brother, would he like spinach?"

Today's Spiritual Quote
The Bible is an excellent resource book from which to learn about angels. The Old Testament alone refers to angels 108 times. The New Testament, which is much shorter than the Old Testament, nevertheless speaks of angels even more often--165 times. You can't believe in the God revealed in the Bible without believing also in angels. end quote
