|Subject: Walking on water Mon Dec 10, 2012 1:58 pm|| |
Paddy has long heard the stories of an amazing family tradition.
On their 18th birthday it seems that his father, grandfather and great grandfather, had all been able to walk on water.On that special day they,d each walk across the lake to the pub on the other side for their first legal drink. So when Paddy,s 18th birthday came around , he and his mate Mick took a boat out to the middle of the lake , Paddy stepped out of the boat and nearly drowned!, Mick just barely saved him.
Furious and confused, Paddy went to see his grandmother. "Grandma", he asked, "tis me 18th birthday ,so why cant I walk across the lake like me father, grand father and great grandfather"?.
His granny looked deep into his eyes and said, "because they were born in January when the lake is frozen and you were born in August ye feckin eejit"!!!!
