The River

 
I think we need some humor instead of talking about politics. So, here's a humorous e-mail I received from an American friend who lives in California. I met her while living in Sydney, Australia. We kept in touch since then. Her e-mails will always make me laugh.

Here's her latest e-mail:
One day, three men were hiking and unexpectedly came upon a large raging, violent river. They needed to get to the other side, but had no idea of how to do so. The first man prayed to God, saying, "Please God, give me the strength to cross this river." Poof! God gave him big arms and strong legs, and he was able to swim across the river in about two hours, after almost drowning a couple of times.

Seeing this, the second man prayed to God, saying, "Please God, give me the strength...and the tools to cross this river." Poof! God gave him a rowboat and he was able to row across the river in about an hour, after almost capsizing the boat a couple of times.

The third man had seen how this worked out for the other two, so he also prayed to God saying, "Please God, give me the strength and the tools... and the intelligence ... to cross this river." And Poof! God turned him into a woman. She looked at the map, hiked upstream a couple of hundred yards, then walked across the bridge.

This should be sent to all the smart women you know,or to a smart guy who needs to remember who keeps him afloat!.
