The Amish solution to Beauty

A teenage Amish boy and his father were in a new multi-story shopping mall.  They were amazed at all the modern technology that they saw but were especially impressed with the two shiny, silver walls that opened up to allow people in and then slid back together again leaving the people enclosed in the little box.

The boy asked, “What is this, Father?”

The father, having never seen an elevator, replied, “Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life.  I don’t know what it is.”

While the boy and his father were mesmerized by the strange contraption, an old, fat lady shuffled to the moving walls and pressed the button.  The walls opened up and the lady crept slowly through them into the small room.  The walls closed and the boy and his father watched as the lighted numbers above the walls counted upward, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.

They continued to watch until the last number was reached at which time the numbers began lighting up in reverse order.  Finally, the walls opened up again and a beautiful 25-year old blonde stepped out.

The father, not taking his eyes off the beautiful young woman, said quietly to his son, “Go get your mother.”
