Talking When God Created Upstate NY

AND GOD CREATED UPSTATE NEW YORK "

Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Heaven, God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found him resting on the seventh day. He inquires of God, "Where have you been?"

God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction and proudly pointed downward through the clouds. "Look, Michael, look what I've made."

Archangel Michael looked puzzled and said, "What is it?"
"It's a planet," replied God, "and I've put life on it. I'm going to call it earth and it's going to be a great place of balance.

"Balance?" inquired Michael, still confused.

God explained, pointing to different parts of the earth,
"For example, Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while Africa is going to be poor. The Middle East over there will be a hot spot," God continued, pointing to different countries. "This one will be extremely hot and while this one will be very cold
and covered with ice."

The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a large land mass with great lakes, mountains, and even a part of the ocean as it border
and said, "What's that one?"

"Ah," said God, "that's upstate New York, the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful mountains, beaches, rivers, lakes, and climate. The people from upstate New York are going to be modest, intelligent, and humorous, and they are going to be found traveling the world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking,
and high achieving people, and they will be known throughout the world as diplomats and carriers of peace."

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then exclaimed, "What about balance, God? You said there would be balance! Everyone and everything seems so totally perfect in this place you call upstate New York!"

God replied wisely,........................................... ...............
"Wait until you see the *******s I'm sending up there from The City every summer!!!"

Gary,

I was sick that whole weekend. Did absolutely nothing. Didn't feel well until Tuesday. Went up to the lake Saturday morning. Passed you on the N-way. Did you see me towing the Skater? Glad you had fun. Next time for sure dude! Glad your boat is running well.

Shane,
I did see you on the north way. I wasn't sure if it was you though. I thought you kept the Skater at the lake? The ride home always sucks You know, I haven't met your wife yet. Are you really married? See you next year!
