Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend my your ear.
Actually, lend me a hand.
Better yet, how about a hairy arm?
Here’s a little story, I like to call The Help. The other night, I was in the laundry room. Reaching. Reaching my arm deep, deep between the washer and dryer for a sock that had fallen through the cracks.
Ho hum, just trying to do some sock match-making on a Sunday night. I. Had. To. Reach. That. Black. Nike. Sock. Those. Suckers. Are. Expensive.
Then. Whaddya know. Stuck. A little twist and my arm was stuck. I tried to move it this way and that way. I tried to move the dryer with my shoulder. Nothing.
“Someone help me!” I yelled.
(I’ve fallen and I can’t get up! Almost. But instead, my arm is stuck and I can’t get it out!)
My daughter to the rescue! Heave ho, she moved the dryer an inch and I was free. Then she ran to her room and retrieved…
…the hairy arm grabber.
“Here. You can have this to grab the socks, so your arm won’t get stuck next time.”
My daughter, she saved me! I think I’ll pair her socks for a few more years.
