Today I remembered a joke told by one my residents when I worked at a homeless and recovery ministry. So I am going to try retelling it as close to his portrayal as I can. There is this lady named Sally, and she had some health problems. She ended up on the operating table and she talked to God. "Is this it, God? Am I going to die now?" God answered, "No Sally, you have 40 more years."
Well then Sally got through the operation and got better just fine. Since she had made it through and knew she had 40 years left, she decided to get 'some work' done. She got a tuck here, and a lift there. She got a boob job and some other surgeries. As she was leaving one of her appointments, she walked out into the street and got hit by an ambulance and died.
She got to heaven and said, "God! What happened! I thought you said I had another 40 years!"
God said, "OH Sally??? I didn't recognize you."
