Chatting with God

Dear God
I’m not really feeling on my game today. I’m kind of moody, overtired and very unmotivated. I figured since I work so hard every other day that I deserve to take a day off today. Besides, you have millions of other people working for you that can pick up my slack. How would you feel about me calling in sick today?
– Jen.

Dear Jen,
That’s funny. I was just thinking that since I work so hard every day that I deserve to take a day off today, too. Besides, there are other people that can take over and pick up the slack for me. How would you feel about ME calling in sick today?
– God

Dear God,
On second thought, I don’t think it’s a good idea for either one of us to call in sick. Even though I’ve run the show without you before, things go a lot smoother with you in charge. Maybe we could both show up and tough it out together. What do you think?
– Jen

Dear Jen,
I like your attitude. As long as you’re willing to do your part, I promise to show up and do mine. Now, let’s get to work.
– God
