My Golf Round

Let’s just say I haven’t laughed that hard in a while.

Met a guy who has known Dave for 60 days.

This is how he introduced himself:

“Hey, I’m 90 days in a separation and Dave is saving my a–. You know what has been the most f—- profound thing to me? He told me that the best I could do was to work on my s—, don’t worry about her’s. Is that not like the best f—– advice you’ve ever heard?”

Now, imagine that with a New York accent. I felt like I was an extra in an episode of the Sopranoes. His vulnerability and willingness to risk was so refreshing. I’ve found a new friend.

The funniest thing was after the introductions, we get in the golf cart and he asks me what I do for a living.

I say – “I work with teenagers.”

He says – “No sh–?! That is f—– awesome. That’s gotta be cool. Are you a teacher or something?”

I say – “Nope. I tell teenagers about Jesus Christ, man. I’m a youth pastor!”

He looks right at me, while driving the cart and says “No sh–.”

I say – “No sh–.”

What a great 18 holes! We grabbed lunch afterwards and I’m going to try to hook up with him every now and then.

  2. You guys make me laugh. Maybe it is b/c it is 1am, I have been up since 6 am (only 11 more hours to go). I wish I could get some of my patients to respond like that.


  3. Oh c’mon! You KNOW the Peter dropped a few bombs at the beginning of his following Jesus!Like when Jesus does His first few miracles, you know Peter’s over in the corner going “Holy Sh–!!”I’m sure Jesus had a little “chat” with Peter on many occassions.


  4. Nelson…I’m with you…only I’m sure he said something like HOLY SHEEP SH** or HOLY CAMEL SH**!I’m sure he also said “What the Heck!” I think that is somewhere in the apocrypha.
