Teenager wants a car:

My computer has been in hospital getting updated and refreshed. Being without it for several days made me realise how many things I’ve let go about the house. Since the return of the computer I’ve been reading blogs, so no time to write tonight. I shall post this lovely story a friend sent:

Teenager wants a car.

A teenage boy had just passed his driving test and inquired of his
father
as to when they could discuss his use of the car.
His father said he’d make a deal with his son, “You bring your grades up
from a C to a B average, study your Bible a little and get your hair
cut.
Then we’ll talk about the car.”
The boy thought about that for a moment, decided he’d settle for the
offer
and they agreed on it.

After about six weeks his father said, “Son, you’ve brought your grades
up
and I’ve observed that you have been studying your Bible,
but I’m disappointed you haven’t had your hair cut.”

The boy said, “You know, Dad, I’ve been thinking about that, and I’ve
noticed in my studies of the Bible that Samson had long hair, John the
Baptist had long hair,
Moses had long hair, and there’s even strong evidence that Jesus had
long
hair.”

(You’re going to love the Dad’s reply!)

“Did you also notice that they all walked everywhere they went?”

    HA! Did not expect that answer!
    Sometimes I think I am far too attached to my computer. I can tell, because when I’m away from it, I feel a certain release and freedom. Yet, every day, the routine is the same: make the coffee, feed the cat, and park myself at my desk.
