Permission For Caffein


She once decided to
ask God for permission
for each cup of coffee...
she would say a prayer
and then flip a coin
asking that its fall
be Godguided.
Over 3 days she
got 9 no's in a row.
The odds of that
happening on a random
basis are 1 in 512 or
2 to the 9th power.
She obeyed for those
3 days. What did she
learn? Not to ask
again since she was not
surrendered to the
answer.
Years later she's
still drinking 1/4 cup
a day

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
