Dear God of Weather,
This weekend I am the co-best man in my friend Brad's wedding. I noticed in your daily announcement on weather.com that you plan on showering northern New Jersey with rain and lightning tomorrow. Unfortunately your plans don't coordinate with Brad and his soon-to-be wife Kari who have planned an outdoor wedding for tomorrow evening. As co-best man -- and the author of a minimally popular blog -- I think it is my duty to ask you to postpone your tumultuous weather plans until Monday (nobody wants it to rain on Sunday either because it is Father's Day). Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
P.S. Brad and Kari are going to Hawaii on Monday for their honeymoon. Their trip is well deserved and should be totally awesome...unless of course their is a nuclear attack from North Korea. I only mention this because I read on CNN.com this morning:
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Defense Secretary Robert Gates said the United States could defend itself in the event of a North Korean missile launch toward Hawaii, and that U.S. officials were monitoring the situation carefully.
According to Japanese media Thursday, North Koreans are preparing to make such a launch.
With missile interceptors and radar equipment in the region, "we are in a good position should it become necessary to protect the American territory," Gates said.
So, ah, God, while you're up there in the sky holding back the thunder can you also stop any potential nuclear warheads. Oh, and while we're on the subject, if you're not too busy, how about a little world peace? That would be really great. Thanks again in advance.
