Cargas una Pistola?

Queridos amigos,                                            Cargas una Pistola?

"Preferiría perder mi dinero que mi vida", respondí. Un amigo cercano respondió: "Jack Benny a menudo contaba esta broma: "Un sujeto me enfrentó una vez diciendo, su dinero o su vida... y yo le respondí, lo estoy pensando. "

Mi compañero de vivienda colombiano agregó: "Una broma colombiana en respuesta a eso es Toma mi vida porque el dinero lo necesito."

Do You Carry a Hand Gun?

A friend nearby responded, “Jack Benny often told the joke, “A fellow once confronted me, your money or your life, I said, I’m thinking.” My Colombian temporary roommate added, “A Colombian joke in response to that is “I think I need my money; take my life.” Another cousin added, “If you have a gun you might shoot the wrong person.” “Are you a supporter of Trump?” I asked the first cousin. “Yes, He is doing many good things.” he answered. I responded, “As a follower of Jesus I can’t support him because of the bombing: he is killing people.” He responded, “How many has he killed?” “I don’ know. But one is too many. Let’s still be friends.” Thus ended our conversation. Here I am with my cousins at the 77th Markey reunion.


Join me in pray…
