  • BOSS: why didn't you show up for work yesterday?
  • me: because i don't work on holidays
  • BOSS: yesterday was July 6??
  • me: uh yeah, yesterday was the day John Lennon met Paul McCartney, July 6th, 1957.
  • He and his Quarrymen skiffle group were playing at the garden fete of St Peter's Church, Woolton, Liverpool.
  • One of John's mates was mates with Paul, so this mate introduced Paul to John. And he asked Paul to join their group, which later became wildly known as the Beatles. With the company of George and Ringo of course.
  • BOSS: .....
  • me: National Mclennon Day, duhh!
Why does the Lord give to man the prolongation of his days upon the earth? In order that a man should have time to repent and to cleanse himself from his sins and passions, and that truth and love should entirely penetrate his heart, by means of the teaching of his feelings in relation to good and evil.
