The story is told about three expectant fathers who were nervously waiting and pacing back and forth in the Good Samaritan Hospital as their wives were getting ready to give birth to their first children. These would-be fathers were invited to watch the births, but they were too scared to go into the birthing rooms.
Soon the head nurse arrived with the good news from one of those rooms. She said to the first father, “I’ve got great news for you sir, you are the father of twins.” “Oh my,” said the young new Dad, “that is so incredible. I am a baseball player and I am going to sign a contract with the Minnesota Twins.”
The other fathers in waiting nervously congratulated him. Soon the nurse arrived and said to the second father-to-be, “Sir, I think you better sit down. You are the father of healthy triplets.” He sank into the chair and said, “I can hardly believe this, because I work for the 3M Company. This is going to blow their minds.”
At which point the third about-to-be father ran out the room as fast as he could run. He was moving so fast, that he did not even bother to take the elevator. Finally a nurse yelled out the window as the man entered the nearby parking lot, “What’s wrong, where are you going?” He shouted back, “I’ve got to resign my job real fast. I am Vice President of SEVEN UP!”
How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. Psalm 127:5
