    Default Rome

    Tuesday my wife and I go on a citytrip to Rome
    and that is no joke !


    Of course we want to go see the Vatican
    and we'll make sure to get there by lunchtime


    why?


    When I was in high school an inspector came in our class,
    when he saw me he came straight to me and said
    Hey Frank how are you? And your family?” etc
    the teacher was astonished that this inspector knew me.


    A few months later the Belgian King came to our school.
    He too came straight to me “Hey Frank, what's up?”
    I said “Hi Baudouin, how are you, and how's the Queen?”


    Afterwards I was called to the school principal and he asked me how I came to know all these important people and even more how they all came to know me.
    I said I didn't know, it just happened to be that way and that I even knew the Pope of Rome.


    No, he replied, that's impossible, I don't believe that, listen,
    next year we have this schooltrip to Rome and you and I are going to see whether or not this story is true.


    The next year, we did go to Rome and the principal and I went to the Vatican.
    The guards stopped us, there was no audience,
    I said tell the Pope Frank is here.
    The guard came back in a minute and asked me in.


    The school principal had to stay down in Saint Peters Square.
    The Pope was on the terrace giving his Papal Blessing and I joined him.


    I could see our principal standing there in the crowd.
    All of a sudden he fell down.


    I rushed downstairs and helped him up.


    What's the matter” I asked
    Oh, he replied, I was standing next to a Chinese guy,
    and you know what he asked me ?


    Who's that man standing next to Frank?” ...
