Rejected by Readers Digest....


…and I could’ve really used that $100…



While waiting for a table in a fairly expensive restaurant in Long Beach, my dad and very pregnant mother took up residence in the bar with another couple. After waiting for over an hour and a half to be seated the waiter finally announces their name and begins to lead them to their table. As they are walking he turns to my dad and asks….“Have you been waiting long?”, to which my father, pointing to my mom, replies…”She wasn’t even pregnant when we came in.”



Tee hee…I miss my dad :)

That has always been one of my favorite stories about your father. Wit, wisdom and and just enough zing to make people responsible for their actions.

Love Ya,

SOH

It's a beautiful picture - what do they know. And remember, each rejection is just one step closer to an acceptance (save it for the big bucks!)
