The Good Samaritan

The man, walking down the road when the sun was high in the sky, suddenly saw shadows behind the rocks. He was taking a trip and was going to stop in the nearest town at sunset. As he passed the large rocks, some bandits jumped out at him. The rest was a blur. When they left him, he was injured, dirty, and left with no money or food. The man knew he couldn't make it to the town, so he hoped someone would pass by soon.

A priest was passing by. He was going home from visiting his brother. When he saw the man, he stopped. Ugh! he thought. I suppose bandits left him there. Hurried by thoughts of bandits, the priest crossed to the other side of the road.

A Levite was also passing through. He saw the man, but he hated getting dirty. The Levite passed on the other side, too.

The situation was getting worse and worse. The man was losing consciousness, and he wasn't able to yell for help. The sun was going down. Then, all of a sudden, he heard hoof beats on the road a few feet away. It was a Samaritan and his donkey. They got close, and when they saw the man, the Samaritan stopped his donkey and knelt down beside the man. "What's your name?" He asked, opening his pack and taking out oil and wine. "Stephan," came the reply. "Well, I'm Joel, and we'll have to hurry if we're going to make it to the town." said Joel, smiling. He finished bandaging the hurt man and then picked him up and put him on the donkey They hurried toward the town and arrived just as the sun was going down. Joel took Stephan to an inn and took care of him. The next day Joel told the innkeeper, "Take care of him. When I return, I will pay you back for any extra expenses you may have." Then he gave the innkeeper two silver coins.

The End

The Dance

It was a really fun dance! The theme was black and white. We got our outfits at Belk the day of the dance and our mom did our hair.

Also, when my dress came home, the security tag was still on the dress and we couldn't take it off. So, right before we went, we had to go back to Belk. The woman couldn't get it off either, so then I had to get another dress. :p

We have been very busy this week. Here is our schedule:

Monday was an art class from 9:00 to 11:30

Tuesday was the art class again.

Wednesday was the art class again (it was a three-day art class)

Thursday (today) We went to our piano lessons and Leah is babysitting.

Friday: We are going to our volunteer classes and a Daddy/Daughter Dance.

Unfortunately today we went to the store but we couldn't find anything for the dance. Oh, well.

Plus, my birthday is in April. At the art class, which was taught by Barry Stebbing, we learned a lot, and plus I got an art journal from my mother for my birthday. Mr. Stebbing is a great teacher, and he kept some art journals which were really cool.

What have you been doing this week?

"Remember... this conversation never happened."

These are from my friend Mattie's blog. I thought they were funny!

Things to do to make the Pizza guy feel nervous:

1. While you are you are making an order, randomly start pressing the numbers on the phone and tell the guy to stop doing it.

2. Make up a credit card name and ask if they accept it.

3. Ask for diet water.

4. Finish the order with: “Remember... this conversation never happened”.

5. Tell him you’ve got another pizza delivery on the other line and you’re buying from the one who offers the lowest price.

6. Just give him your address and say “Surprise me”. Then hang up.

7. Answer his questions with other questions.

8. Spell the ingredients.

9. Stutter every time you say something with the letter “P”

10. Ask him if they have pizza.

11. Say “Hello” and act as if he called you.

12. Make your order being very decided and secure, then when he asks you if you would like a drink with the pizza, act as if you were confused.

13. Change your accent every 5 seconds.

14. Ask for 56 pepperoni slices followed by an equation.

15. If he repeats the order to make sure, say “OK, it’s $17.90, please proceed to the next window to pick up your order”.

16. Explain him that you want to rent a Pizza.

17. Ask if you can keep the box. When he answers yes, make a huge sigh of relief.

18. Ask him if he wants to keep the pizzas that he delivered to you.

19. Tell him to make sure that your pizza is dead.

20. Imitate the voice of the guy taking the order.

21. Eliminate the verbs of everything you say.

22. Tell him that there’s a surprise party at yours and that you would appreciate if the delivery boy could hide behind the couch until the celebrated one comes in to surprise him/her.

23. Ask if you could see the menu.

24. Warn them that they have no idea of what they are dealing with by supplying this order.

25. Ask him which ingredient is better for a meal with a specific type of wine.

26. Burp and then tell your cat that he should be ashamed.

27. Ask only for one slice.

28. Act mad at the guy taking the order.

29. Complain about the service. Call again two hours later saying that you decided everything was fine and that you are sorry about what you said.

30. Tell the guy taking the order to tell the one in charge to tell the supervisor that he’s fired.

31. Randomly start screaming at someone who is apparently next to you.

32. Stop speaking every 10 seconds and start playing an instrument.

33. Tell a secret code to the guy taking the order and tell him to memorize it for orders you’ll make in the future.

34. Ask for mushrooms as the first ingredient, then before you hang up, say “No mushrooms please”. Then hang up before he can say anything.

35. when he repeats the order, correct him changing an ingredient, then correct him again, and again. The third time ask him if it’s his first day working there.

36. Breathe loudly.

37. Ask him how many whales/dolphins had to die to make that pizza.

38. Avoid using the word “PIZZA” by any means. If the guy taking the order says it, hang up saying “Please, don’t use that word”.

39. Make the order during a car chase on TV. When there are gunshots, yell “Aaarghhh”

40. If the guy taking the order doesn’t take any
of the previous jokes, ask him if there’s any other who would take them.

The Answer

There's a cat I'm thinking of
Guess what it could be!
Not a tabby, Manx, or calico
He's fiercer then those three
He likes to live in India
And eat and swim in style
He has a very stripy coat
And can eas'ly run a mile
Can you guess what cat he is?
Tell me, don't be shyger
Because the cat I'm thinking of
Is nothing but a TIGER!

The answer is a Tiger! Good job, Rachel!
