On the Lighter Side. . . .Sleeping @ Your Desk

I mentioned my Monday "delightful exhaustion" in yesterday's message. I received this from dear Liz Cardenas and it made me laugh. (This is in no way an encouragement to put me on your email joke list!)

TEN things to say when caught sleeping @ your desk!

10. "They told me at the Blood Bank this might happen."

9. "This is just a 15 minute power nap they raved about in the time management course you sent me to!"

8. "Whew! Guess I left the top off the Whiteout. You probably got here just in time."

7. "I wasn't sleeping! I was meditating on the mission statement and envisioning a new business strategy."

6. "I was testing my keyboard for drool resistance."

5. "I was doing a highly specific Yoga exercise to relieve work-related stress. Are you discriminatory toward people who practice Yoga?"

4. "Darn! Why did you int! errupt me? I had almost figured out how to handle that big accounting problem."

3. "Did you ever notice sound coming out of these keyboards when you put your ear down real close?"

2. "Who put decaf in the wrong pot?!?"

AND THE NUMBER ONE best thing to say if you get caught sleeping at your desk........

1. Raise your head slowly and say,

"...in Jesus name, Amen."

HI Tim. That was great! I enjoy reading your blog often and is great to stay plugged in to what is going on at Grace. I have my own blog now too, straightshot.blogspot.com. I can't figure out how to add links to the side, as you have done. The helps section on editing links didn't help much. Any advice?


Thanks Tim-it's great to see God working through you and the body in SLO!-Rob Gunn

The last one is by far the best.
