A man was riding his Harley along a California beach when suddenly
the sky clouded above his head and, in a booming voice, the Lord said,
‘Because you have TRIED to be faithful to me in all ways,
I will grant you one wish.’
The biker pulled over and said,
‘Build a bridge to Hawaii so I can ride over anytime I want’.
The Lord said, ‘That request is materialistic, think of the enormous
challenges for that kind of undertaking; the supports required to reach
the bottom of the Pacific and the concrete and steel it would take!
It will nearly exhaust several natural resources.
I can do it, but it is hard for me to justify your desire for worldly things.
Take a little more time and think of something that could possibly help
mankind.’ The biker thought about it for a long time.
Finally, he said, ‘Okay, I wish that I, and all men, could understand
our wives; I want to know how she feels inside, what she’s thinking
when she gives me the silent treatment, why she cries, what she
means when she says ‘nothing’s wrong’, and how I can make a
woman truly happy.’
And the Lord replied, ‘You want two lanes or four lanes on that bridge?’
