He said, "I want to teach you a lesson about being prepared. This is a TRUE story." And then proceeded to tell me about a wife's husband and 10 grooms, 5 who had extra oil for their lamps and 5 who didn't. Besides a few details, he got most of it right. If you are unfamiliar with the parable of the 10 virgins, here it is in video form:
My favorite part of his story was when the foolish "grooms" who ran out of oil asked the wise ones to share their oil with them, and the wise ones said, "I love and you're great, but I don't have enough to share with you."
He is so gifted at ignoring people, that most of the time I just assume he isn't listening, so when he drops something like this on me, it always blows me away.
