    My Grandson

    Last week, I took my grandchildren to a restaurant.

    My six-year-old grandson asked if he could say grace.

    As we bowed our heads he said, "God is good, God is great. Thank you for the food, and I would even thank you more if Grandpa gets us ice cream for dessert. And liberty and justice for all! Amen!"

    Along with the laughter from the other customers nearby, I heard a woman remark, "That's what's wrong with this country. Kids today don't even know how to pray. Asking God for ice cream! Why, I never!"

    Hearing this, my grandson broke into tears and asked me, "Did I do it wrong? Is God mad at me?"

    As I held him and assured him that he had done a terrific job, and God was certainly not mad at him, an elderly gentlemen approached the table. He winked at my grandson and said, "I happen to know that God thought that was a great prayer."

    "Really?" my grandson asked.

    "Cross my heart," the man replied.

    Then in a theatrical whisper, he added(subtly implicating the woman whose remark had started this whole thing), "Too bad she never asks God for ice cream. A little ice cream is good for the soul sometimes."

    Naturally, I bought my grandchildren ice cream at the end of the meal. My grandson stared at his for a moment, and then did something I will remember the rest of my life."

    He picked up his sundae and, without a word, walked over and placed it in front of the woman. With a big smile, he told her, "Here, this is for you. Shove it up your ass, you grouchy old bitch!"

    When pushed, I usually pull.

    I would have calmly, but audibly comforted the boy by saying, "Oh don't be upset, Sweetie - in a few short years God will send that nasty old lady to H-E-Double-HockeyStix." Then I'd raise my hand for a High-Five.

    Anybody who knows me well, knows I would do it too.
