Tom's Scrotum

The best story of the year doesn't give the proper praise and credit  for this painful but understandable story as told by a loving  wife......
The pastor asked if anyone in the congregation would like to express  praise for answered prayers.
Suzy Smith stood and walked to the podium. She said, "I have a praise report.  Two months ago, my husband, Tom had a terrible bike  accident and his scrotum was completely crushed.  The pain was excruciating and the doctors didn't know if they could help him."
You could hear a muffled gasp from the men in the congregation as they  imagined the pain that poor Tom must have experienced.
"Tom was unable to hold me or the children," she went on, "and every  move caused him terrible pain.  We prayed as the doctors performed a delicate operation, and it turned out they were able to piece together  the crushed remnants of Tom's scrotum, and wrap wire around it to hold  it in place."
Again, the men in the congregation squirmed uncomfortably as they  imagined the horrible surgery performed on Tom.
"Now", she announced in a quivering voice, "thank the Lord, Tom is out  of hospital and the doctors say that with time his scrotum should  recover completely."
All the men sighed with unified relief.  The pastor rose and  tentatively asked if anyone else had something to say.
A man stood up and walked slowly to the podium.  He said, "I'm Tom  Smith."  The entire congregation held their breath.  "I just want to  tell my wife the word is sternum."

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
