while visiting our son max yesterday, he told us a funny story.
apparently max lucado spoke at his university's chapel and did
such a fine job that our max went forward to thank him.
"hey mr. lucado, awesome message! i wanted to tell you that
when i was in the fourth grade, i played punchinello from the
book you wrote. also, i thought you should know that i took
your daughter to a date party last semester. oh, and my name
is max, too."
max, the father of the daughter, the author of punchinello, and
the speaker of the chapel, patted the long-winded max on the
back and said, "i like you, young man."
i told max it would have been pretty fun if he could have said,
"well, sir, i like your daughter." he really needs me to write
"a man who has friends, must show himself friendly."
