Dear God...

Please help my husband. He means well and is a very loving husband and a really fun Dad but sometimes Lord, he says things that just defy reason. For example, today while we were at the grocery store ordering birthday cakes for he and Brice at the bakery/deli counter, he came upon some freshly fried chicken. Desiring a sample, he wanted to ask the girl behind the counter if this was allowed but here is where things went wrong. Instead of wording his request "May I please have a sample of the chicken thighs?," he instead stepped up to the counter and chose the unfortunate wording, "Can I taste your thighs?"
And please God, forgive me being an unsupportive wife and for immediately breaking out into loud gales of laughter (okay, doubling over the counter with laughter) while my poor, embarrassed husband slinked away to check out the produce section. I silently prayed there were no melons on display in that aisle.
He later returned to the bakery/deli to sample the fried gizzards. And to insist that he had included the word "chicken" before the word "thighs"...but he didn't. We both heard him, God. And so did the ladies behind the counter who were considerably less amused than I was. Except for the one who tried to pretend that she wasn't really laughing too and quickly excused herself to the back.

I've heard worse. I know a woman who went to Holland and needed to exchange some money at the bank, so she went to the bank, and asked, very politely, "May I see your rates, please?" She said the whole sentence in Dutch, except for the word "rate" which in Dutch is a very crude term for your posterior. When the teller gasped and asked "pardon me?" she innocently repeated the question, before realizing her error.

Never heard of sampling chicken before. It's not like you can take a bite and give back the rest...interesting...
Still here lifting up prayers!
Psalms 18:30-32 As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock save our God? It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.
