How to tell what someone is going to be.

Post by Old Timer » Sun Jan 18, 2015 8:38 am

An old country preacher had a teenage son, and it was
getting time the boy should be giving some thought to
choosing a profession to pursue.

But like many young men, the boy didn't really know what
he wanted to do, and then to he didn't seem to
concerned about it.

One day, while the boy was away at school, his father decided
to try an experiment. He went to the boy's room and placed on
his study table four objects:
A Bible,
A Silver Dollar,
A Bottle of whiskey,
A Playboy magazine.

"I'll just hide behind the door," the old preacher
said to himself. "When he comes home from school this
afternoon, I'll see which object he picks up."

"If it's the Bible, he's going to be a preacher like me,
and what a blessing that would be."

"If he picks up the dollar, he's going to be a businessman,
and that would be okay too."

"But if he picks up the bottle, he's going to be a no-good
drunkard, Lord, what a shame that would be."

"And worst of all, if he picks up that magazine he's gonna be
a skirt-chasin' worthless bum."

The old man waited anxiously and soon heard his son's footsteps
as entered the house whistling and heading for his room.
The boy tossed his books on the bed, and as he turned to leave
the room, he spotted the objects on the table.

With curiosity in his eye, he walked over to inspect them.

Finally, he picked up the Bible and placed it under his arm. He
then picked up the silver dollar and dropped it into his pocket.
Next he uncorked the bottle and took a big drink while he
admired this months centerfold.
"Lord have mercy," the old preacher disgustedly whispered,
He's gonna run for Congress!"
