Ice Cream

Last week, I took my grandchildren to a restaurant. My six-year-old grand-son asked if he could say grace.

As we bowed our heads he said, "God is good, God is great. Thank you for the food, and I would even thank you more if Grandpa gets us ice cream for dessert. And liberty and justice for all! Amen!"

Along with the laughter from the other customers nearby, I heard a woman remark, "That's what's wrong with this country. Kids today don't even know how to pray. Asking God for ice cream! Why, I never!"

Hearing this, my grand-son burst into tears and asked me, "Did I do it wrong? Is God mad at me?"

As I held him and assured him that he had done a terrific job, and God was certainly not mad at him, an elderly gentleman approached the table.

He winked at my grand-son and said, "I happen to know that God thought that was a great prayer."

"Really?" my grand-son asked.

"Cross my heart," the man replied.

Then, in a theatrical whisper, he added (indicating the woman whose remark had started this whole thing), "Too bad she never asks God for ice cream. A little ice cream is good for the soul sometimes."

Naturally, I bought my grand-children ice cream at the end of the meal. My grand-son stared at his for a moment, and then did something I will remember the rest of my life.

He picked up his sundae and, without a word, walked over and placed it in front of the woman.

With a big smile he told her, "Here, this is for you. Shove it up your butt you grouchy old bitch!"

Kinda touches your heart doesn't it?

  13. LOL...I think it would have been touching if maybe he'd said, "God told me to bring this to you. You need it more than I do!" But this way is much more "sock it to her!"

  21. Oh, and I want to know more about Little Bit. I'm so behind...I'm guessing he or she is a cat? If so, send Little Bit "scritches" from me o.k.?

    1. Little Bit is a dog. I'm highly allergic to cats, but if I wasn't I'd be the cat lady. I'll send you the links about her. :)

    2. Oh, thank you I would love that. I don't know if you remember any of my posts about my Golden Retriever, "Wendy" but we had her for twelve years. Wendy helped me rear my son; meaning when he went outside to play she went with him, and told on him several times.

      Thanks for telling me. Send Little huge hugs from me. :)))

    3. I do remember Wendy. Remember I've been reading your blog for a very long time. :)

  27. Priceless!!! I am starting to think that "Why I never.." Is right up there with "Bless her heart". So in this case, I simply say, Hmmph, Bless HER heart! Rude old witch. I really would have been devastated if someone did that to my daughter.

    1. I would be devastated too. It's not right one bit. :)

  28. I am glad the elderly gentleman came over to encourage your grandson. One never knows what kids are going to say. They are very frank and honest with their words.
