Larry was the national director for Christians For Life. He would often help crises pregnancy centers raise money.
Ring ring went the phone, "He...llo."
“Larry, this you your wife, it’s 10:00 am, wake up, your speaking in two hours,”
“Oh my goodness, honey, you're right, thanks for calling.” Larry sprung out of bed and ran over to his suitcase and got out a dress shirt.
He then got the ironing board out, heated up the iron and got his shirt ready to iron. While it heated up, he went over to his briefcase and looked for a copy of his speech. He went through it and couldn’t find it.
He grabbed his cell phone, called his wife, and started to iron his shirt. “Hello,.” answered his wife.
“Honey, I can't find a copy of my speach. I think I left it on my desk. I need you to go to my computer, and get into word and put it in a e-mail so I can print it out at the hotel's business center. Can you do that?”
Larry walked away from the ironing board and left the iron on his shirt. “I Listed it as C-a -l-s-p-h.”
Okay I found it , I will put it in a e-mail. Anything else?”
Larry smelt this funny oder, “Oh no, I just burned my shirt!”
“What happened?” his wife asked.
“I was ironing and I left the iron on my shirt. There is a burn mark on it.”
Larry ironed another shirt and was able to print out a copy of his speech. He then went to the banquet and had lunch. After lunch the master of ceremonies got up and started to introduce Larry. He decided to quickly finish off the two remaining French fries; he grabbed the ketchup and accidentally spilled it over his tie and shirt.
As the MC said, “Please welcome, Larry Millford, from Christians For Life.”
Larry grabbed a cloth napkin and tried to wipe off the ketchup quickly, but didn’t get rid of the spot. He then stood up.
"As you can see I have a ketchup stain on my shirt and tie. I’m here to talk about life issues, but I had my own life issues on the way here today. Things like oversleeping, leaving my speech on my desk at home, and burning my shirt. I’m not going to let that stop me from talking about preserving life in the womb."
