An old-timer comes home from his home group meeting, gets ready for bed, and is on his knees saying his evening prayers.
He's in the middle of his "God blesses" saying "God bless the guy who says the same thing no matter what the topic, God bless George, the 'cake lady,' God bless . . . " suddenly he pauses and looks up. Then says, "You know God. I wonder if there is AA in heaven. If there isn't AA in heaven, I don't know if I want to go there. These folks are so important to me, I don't want to spend eternity without them."
There's a bolt of lightning and a loud clap of thunder and then the old timer hears a Voice saying,
"I have good news and bad news. The good news is, there IS AA in heaven.
The bad news is, You're speaking tomorrow night."
