A biker was riding beside the beach in California when suddenly the sky clouded over above his head. Suddenly a booming voice, that of the lord, said
"because you have tried to be faithful to me in all ways, I will grant you one wish"
The Biker pulled over and immediately said
"Can you build me a bridge to Hawaii so I can ride over anytime I want."
The Lord said, "Your request is materialistic, think of the enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking. The supports required to reach the bottom of the Pacific! All the concrete and steel it would take! It will nearly exhaust several natural resources. I can do it, but it is hard for me to justify your desire for such a worldly thing. Take a little more time and think of something that would honour and glorify me."
The biker thought about it for a long time. Finally he said,
"Lord, I wish that I could understand my partner. I want to know how she feels inside, what she's thinking when she gives me the silent treatment, why she cries, what she means when she says nothing's wrong when I suspect there is, and how can I make a woman truly happy?"
The Lord replied, "Did you want two lanes or four on that bridge?"
