A man puts his son to bed, and tells him to say his prayers. Outside the kid’s room, he listens in.
“God bless Mummy, God bless Daddy, God bless Grandma, and God please look after Grandpa tomorrow”
The man thinks this is odd, but he doesn’t say anything. The next day, Grandpa dies of a heart attack. The man thinks this is more than a bit spooky, but assumes that it was a coincidence.
The next night, he puts his son to bed and tells him to say his prayers.
“God bless Mummy, God bless Daddy, and God please look after Grandma tomorrow”.
Now the man’s freaked out. And sure enough, the next day Grandma is run over by a bus.
That night, he puts the kid to bed and tells him to say his prayers.
“God bless Mummy, and please God look after Daddy tomorrow”.
After not sleeping for the entire night, the man spends the entire day being extremely careful, regularly checking his pulse and looking both ways even when crossing one way streets. After work, he gets home, exhausted.
“Wow”, says his wife, “you look rough”
“Heck of a day” says the man.
“You can say that again”, says the wife. “This morning, the doorbell rang, and the milkman fell right into our front hall and died”.
