|I do not often say the right thing, but when I do, what a joy it is.|
Click here to read the first 75 lines of the story “Oh,” I said rather hesitatingly, “I'm just chewing on a little bit of meat I found in the refrigerator.” I thought that would solve the problem and for a while it looked like it did. I just got seated in my chair when she, looking at the turkey, said, “Did you get a piece of this turkey to eat?” When you're found out, you're found out. And trust me, I was found out. Not all the lying in the world could get me out of this predicament that I was in. I thought I had come to the end. She had caught me with turkey in my mouth. I was sure I was in some deep trouble. Then she said something that totally surprised me. “How was that turkey? Was it any good?” I like to take advantage of situations so I said, “That was the best turkey I have ever tasted in my life.” With a smile, she turned and walked away. How I got away with that, I am going to have to ponder for quite a few days. As I pondered my situation, I thought of a verse in Proverbs. “A man hath joy by the answer of his mouth: and a word spoken in due season, how good is it!” (Proverbs 15:23). I do not often say the right thing, but when I do, what a joy it is. Tweet
