Jesus – Others – You


To kick off my brand-new website, I would like to start with my very favorite joke. Even though it uses a music vocabulary word, I still think you will enjoy it

There was a fellow who had a drinking problem and his wife was fed up with it. She told him to go to the doctor and get a check-up. She told him not to come home if the doctor told him he was an alcoholic. So grudgingly, he went to the doctor and sure enough, the doctor told him he had alcoholism.

“Oh, Doc, isn’t there another word for it? My wife won’t let me come home if that is what I have.”

“Sorry, but there’s no other word for it.”

As the fellow slowly walked home, he passed by a music store and saw the word “Syncopation” on a poster on the wall.

“That sounds like a good word. I’ll tell my wife that’s what I have.”

He arrives home and of course, his wife asks what the diagnosis was.

“I have syncopation.”

“What in the world is syncopation?”

“I really don’t know,” he said and quickly left the room.

The wife found a dictionary and promptly looked up the word.

“Syncopation is the irregular movement from bar to bar.”

Did you laugh? Feel free to pass it on. And if you feel so inclined, send me a funny story or joke now and then. I would love to hear them. Keep chuckling; sometimes, it makes people wonder what you’re up to. And it does your heart good.
