Henrietta: Pastor Bob said he’d be here before midnight.
Mildred: My watch says it’s before midnight.
Henrietta: So Pastor Bob is here. Right?
Henrietta. But it’s always before midnight unless it is midnight.
Mildred: So Pastor Bob is always here.
Henrietta: That’s what I love about Pastor Bob; he’s always around when you need him.
Mildred: But it’s always after midnight, too, unless of course it is midnight. So Pastor Bob is never here.
Henrietta: That’s what I was saying… Pastor Bob never seems to be around when you need him.
Mildred: Isn’t that the case.
Henrietta: I wonder if he’s even coming tonight.
Mildred: The reason he wanted to come before midnight was so he wouldn’t be out all the way ‘til tomorrow.
Henrietta: But if tomorrow is after midnight, and it’s always after midnight, then it must always be tomorrow…even today.
Mildred: Are you trying to tell me he’s not coming until tomorrow?
Henrietta: No! He’s coming today. Before midnight.
Mildred: But it’s before midnight, so he must already be here.
Henrietta: Then what’re you standing there for? Get him some tea!
