—Jim Morrison/The Doors—specifically from the album “The Soft Parade”.
As indicated in my previous Dick Jones entry, we didn’t have much $ when I was a kid growing up (Prolly ’cause most of it got spent on liquor; regrettably, the rest my Dad spent foolishly…), and I REALLY wanted a bicycle (this being after I got the REST of a suit of clothes, subsequent to getting a hat for my 5th birthday).
After praying EVERY night for ~6 months, still no bike. I told my Dad that I had been praying for a bicycle for six months with no “luck”, whereupon he advised me that “prayer doesn’t work that way”…
So I just went out and STOLE a bicycle and prayed for forgiveness instead—SUCCESS!
