The Meenister’s Log
Believing in predestination, a new father set out three objects on the dining room table in preparation for his son’s arrival home from school.
The first object was a £100 note. “That represents high finance. If he takes this, he’s go into business.”
The second object was a Bible. “If he takes this one, he’ll be a man of the cloth.”
The third object was a bottle of cheap whisky. “If he goes for this one, he’ll be a drunkard!”
The father and his wife then hid where they could see their son’s approach.
Soon, the son entered the room and examined each article briefly. He then checked to make sure that he was alone
Not seeing anyone, he stuffed the money in his pocket, put the Bible under his arm, and strolled out of the room draining the whiskey. The father looked at his wife and beamed, “How about that! He’s going to be a lawyer!”
