My God must be crazy!

Thats because, He devised an ingenious way of keeping me ramrod straight on my chair while working. My God uses an invisible straw which rests on the table edge with the other tip ending at my forehead, forming the hypotenuse of a right angle triangle.
But the unthinkable happened today morning. I leaned too much over the straw, and it broke. I immediately folded my hands, had a sip of coffee, and prayed,"Please keep me upright. I have work to do". He listened and reluctantly replaced the straw.
After two hours and breaking nine more, I ask The Lord again, " Please Sir, I have a call at 12.30. Once more, and I will never ask for anything from you today."
He looks at me with disgust, " My dear, that was the last straw"
I stare at him, shocked, and against my own will, my forehead drops on the table.

LOL!! Great post! Totally agree with Scorpion dude.. but even after breaking eight, you didn't opt for a steel rod instead of the straw? ;)

Antbrain - If only he listens to me ... I get a spare straw after a lot of pleading, so negotiation was out of question!

Anu - Yeiyeeeee! Thanks - its a by-product of a sleepy morning, and a bad call of course!
