I'd like it noted in the permanent record, that I have officiated at four weddings. The first was for a co-worker when I was at CTSA
, in Placer County. Sherie has kept in touch over the years and about five years ago, organized a reunion up in Auburn, which was fun.
I get jokes from her about once a month. This is the most recent:
Back in the woods, a redneck's wife went into labor in the middle of the night, and the doctor was called out to assist in the delivery. Since there was no electricity, the doctor handed the father-to-be a lantern and said, "Here, you hold this high so I can see what I'm doing." Soon, a baby boy was brought into the world. "Whoa there," said the doctor. "Don't be in a rush to put the lantern down. I think there's yet another one to come."
Sure enough, within minutes he had delivered a baby girl.
"No, no, don't be in a great hurry to be putting down that lantern ... It seems there's yet another one in there!" cried the doctor. The redneck scratched his head in bewilderment, and asked the doctor,
"Do you think it's the light that's attractin' 'em?"
