"Is He back yet?"
Yesterday, one of my co-workers greeted me in the morning and asked how I was.
"Disappointed," I replied, and he asked why.
"Well, I was really hoping when I woke up this morning that Jesus would have come back, and I would not have to face yet another bowl of oatmeal [my chosen Lenten penance]. But He's not back, and here's the oatmeal."
I suppose there are greater reasons to hope for Jesus' return, but, right now, I'd settle for not having to eat oatmeal.
