Thanks For Applying at McDonalds

I was over at Brendan’s today and helped him to install the window and door. What a pain in the ass! The installation was a pain in the ass, not Brendan. Well, not this time anyways.

What should have been a fairly straight forward job got complicated pretty quickly. The openings weren’t perfect, so we had to adjust them in order for the window and door to work. It wasn’t the end of the world, but it did add time to what should have been a quick install. We managed to do a job that should fool the inspectors and will hold up for as long as the garage is there.

When all was finished, I stood back and looked at the structure that I had helped to build. It was solid and strong with elegant lines and a kind of rakish look. I am sure that unless there is a really horrible hurricane or tornado, that building will be there for many years to come. There is a sense of pride in knowing that there is something else that you can do.

I wonder if that is sort of like what god felt when he made the earth. The first day would start with checking the plans and making sure that you have all the materials that He needed. “Hmmmm….Let’s see…Earth…check; night and day…check; Oh yeah,…light!” Yep, that’s all.
Second day He messed around with the water. “I wonder where those donuts are.”

Day three is the day for dry ground and to get some plants growing. Maybe make some mountains and trees for a little variety.

Day four is the day God makes the sky, sun and moon.

On the fifth day God made all of the birds and animals and told them to be fruitful and to multiply, like you need to tell them that. Just put them in a room together and they will behave like…well…animals. I’m guessing God was wondering if he could get one of the animals trained and send it out for coffee.

On the sixth day, God made man and woman. Finally, we have someone to send out for coffee and donuts. They should have been there first thing in the morning! Actually, I have been going out for coffee ever sense just to keep my end of the bargain.
The seventh day God took to rest. I didn’t think that He needed rest. Kind of strange that God needed to rest, after all the way I have been counting He has just started his first break. I can’t imagine what a great place the earth would be if He had kept working. I wonder if God is on EI benefits now or has it been so long since he worked. I can’t imagine anyone ever employing Him.

“So, ahhh Mister God is it? What was your last job?”

“Yes, I created the earth and cosmos and all that they contain is just seven days and seven nights. God replied.
“So this part time, temporary job is the last and only job you have ever had? We need someone with a little more experience, but thanks for applying at McDonalds.”
