"Go have a cup of coffee!"1

The first day I was in Los Angeles for the Olympic Games, I went out running early in the morning. I asked a man where the stadium was. He said, "Forget the stadium! Go have a cup of coffee!"

Another day, I was walking on the sidewalk when I saw three men — simply undivine — coming towards me. I jumped into the street to avoid them. Very loudly, one said, "Jesus!"

In silence I said to him, "Thank you for invoking a very good Friend of mine!"
