Phone Call from God

I recently had a conversation with a friend who's husband is dying of cancer.  He's currently at home but had a two week stay in the hospital where according to her, he was a bit "loopy" for awhile.


This is how the actual conversation went..

VE:  So how's Bob

Friend:  He's back home, but he really got a bit loopy for while

VE:  Loopy?

Friend:  At one point he was fixated that he'd received a call from God

VE:  Probably an important call to answer 

Friend:  He just kept going on about it and we couldn't figure out where it started from

VE:  I'm sure God has everyone on his contact list, you know.  Perhaps it was just Bob's time to receive a call from God.  Or perhaps he butt dialed...

VE thinking:  Does God have a butt?

Friend:  Then I finally put the pieces together.  He'd received a call from his friend who is a born-again Christian and in his confusion he'd thought that he was God.

VE:  Wow, talk about putting somebody on a pedestal.  Good thing that person didn't suggest too much on the phone.

Friend:  Yeah, another friend dropped by and told him he should get some medical marijuana to ease the pain.

VE:  I see where this is going...

Friend:  Yep, he fixated on the marijuana and kept asking his doctor where the marijuana was.  He wanted his marijuana now!

VE:  He should have called God back and placed an order...
