Recently, I left a post about a meeting with a friend of mine. It was something from the heart that I captured more for myself than anything. My brother Jon posed as a wife (he may have even dressed as her while doing this for all I know) and left a comment on the post. The comment was simple and made me grin:
"Is Pedro the mouse in Paco's pocket?"The comment referred to the fact that I accidentally interchanged the two names in the blog post. My brother Jon proceeded to talk about this for about fifteen minutes yesterday. He explained why it was funny in hopes that we would agree, and then he could say it was actually him. We never gave him that moment.
Since that moment, Jon has started paying a professional comedian to leave comments on Facebook in hopes to bring his status up. This seems to be working. I left a Facebook status today after listening to a great John Ortberg message from Mars Hill. The message was about what it looks like to have your life poured out for others.
My Facebook status: Dave is wondering when I look back at the end, how will my life have been poured out: spilled or poured out for others?
Jon's professional comedian's comment: I bet Cathie's will be spilled. (making reference to the fact that Cathie spills at least once any time she is anywhere).
If you see one of Jon's comments, please let him know that he's funny. It will do his heart good.
