A Cup Of Tea

Got this in an e-mail and wanted to share with you all.

One day my mother was out, and my dad was in charge of me. I was maybe 2 1/2 years old. Someone had given me a little 'tea set' as a gift, and it was one of my favorite toys. Daddy was in the living room engrossed in the evening news when I brought him a little cup of 'tea', which was just water. After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my mom came home.
My dad made her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of tea, because it was 'just the cutest thing!' Mom waited, and sure enough, here I came down the hall with a cup of tea for Daddy and she watched him drink it up.

Then she said, (as only a mother would know), "'Did it ever occur to you that the only place she can reach to get water is the toilet?"

Kentucky Ghost Story

This happened about a month ago just outside of Owensboro,
Kentucky, a small town on the banks of the Ohio River,
and while it sounds like an Alfred Hitchcock tale, it's indeed real.

An out-of-state traveler was walking along the side of the road
hitchhiking on a dark night in the middle of a thunderstorm.
Time passed slowly and no cars went by. It was raining so hard
he could barely see his hand in front of his face.

Suddenly he saw a car approaching, moving slowly and appearing
ghostlike in the rain. It slowly and silently crept toward him
and stopped. Wanting a ride very badly, the guy jumped into the
car and closed the door. Only then did he realize that there was
nobody behind the wheel and no sound of the engine to be
heard over the rain.

Again the car crept slowly forward. The guy was terrified but too
scared to think of jumping out and running. The guy saw that
the car was approaching a sharp curve and still too scared to
jump out. He started to pray and beg for his life. He was certain
the ghost car would go off the road and into the river and
he would surely drown! But just before the curve, a shadowy
figure appeared at the driver's window and a hand reached in and
turned the steering wheel, guiding the car safely around the bend.
Then, just as silently, the hand disappeared through the window
and the hitchhiker was alone again.

Paralyzed with fear, the guy watched the hand reappear every
time they reached a curve. Finally the guy, frightened nearly
to death, had all he could take and jumped out of the car and
ran through the storm to the nearby town.

Wet and in shock, he went into a lighted tavern and with voice
quavering, ordered two shots of whiskey, and then, shaken,
he told everybody about his supernatural experience.

A silence came over those listening and everybody got goose
bumps. They realized the guy was sober and was telling the truth.
And the sounds of the storm continued outside.

About half an hour later, two guys walked into the bar and one
says to the other, 'Look Billy Bob, there's that idiot that rode in our car
while we was pushin' it in the rain.'
