This is a story about Norman + Harriot Wilson.
They're pretty much into their fifties.
Norman is a successful businessman while Harriot is a faithful
housewife, whom, on occasion, gets together with her lady friends
to play the card game called: Bridge.
Money has never ever been a problem for the Wilsons.
Then one morning, as Norman rushes off to his office, which he does
7 days a week, without fail, Harriot quietly goes into the kitchen to make
some coffee. She is sitting by the table, sipping her current brew
of "Tim Horton's" latte, and crying.
All of a sudden, there appears a Genie. He resembles Yul Brenner,
from "The King & I"...and scares Harriot Wilson, half to death.
"I am not here to harm you, sweet lady. I am simply here to grant you
Harriot looks up at this tall bald shirtless figure and asks him if he is
"Yes, I am real and I am here to grant you one wish."
Harriot thinks about it for a minute, and then says to the Genie....
"Okay, I've got one wish. All I want is for my husband to spend more
time with me. He is always on that damn cell-phone of his, and it
would be nice if Norman would give me the 45 minutes he spends on
that phone each and every morning, before rushing off to the office."
The Genie complies.
He turns Harriot Wilson into an iPhone7.
Note: The reason I wrote this little story is because whenever I'm
with people, they cling onto their cell-phones as if it's their
life's blood. I can't stand it.
When you take your Mom out for Mother's Day, spend the time with her
and put the cell-phones away. It might be a good idea to do the same
thing with your kids and with your friends too.
