Fun Friday with a little help from my friends...


 

Love is blind....



 Thank you Monica - Chicken Wrangler.


According to a news report, a certain private Catholic school was recently faced with a unique problem.

A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine provided it was of a natural or neutral skin tone, but after they put on their lipstick, they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints.

Every night the maintenance man would remove them; and the next day the girls would put them back. Finally, the principal, Sister Mary, decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man.

She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian, who had to clean the mirrors every night (you can just imagine the yawns from the little princesses).

To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, Sister Mary asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required. He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it. Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror. There are teachers... And then there are educators!
 I forgot who sent this - I am so sorry.

 
 Thank you Kelly


A Reading from Genesis:


And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the earth.

Then he made the earth round... and He laughed and laughed and laughed.
Thank you Fran.
