A Funny Thing Happened

And God said, “Let there be beer.”


Colleague and author Dan Baldwin was in town for a book signing at the local Barnes & Noble. We managed to gather some time to feast on crayfish and gumbo (Dan’s an Arizona type and such Louisiana delicacies are not desert fare) and proceeded to commit minor philosophy. The understanding and application of the Law of Attraction is one of our favorite studies. The incredible fairness of the law is awesome. Give attention to lack and get “more” lack. Appreciate health and enjoy more health. The attention is the asking and the universe always answers “yes!”

And sometimes it answers promptly.

“On my way back from a hike in the desert,” described Dan of a typical day hike, “I imagine that cold beer waiting for me in town.”

“Here’s your beers,” said the waiter, appearing suddenly and placing two ice cold draft Killians on the table.

“We didn’t order those,” said Dan.

“But you did,” said waiter.

“No, I think we asked for the check earlier,” said I.

“I heard you order two beers,” declared the determined waiter.

We happily received the unannounced brews and realized how they arrived the instant Dan spoke of asking for them in the desert.

Coincidence? No such thing. You gotta love the law.
