The man stopped on hearing the voice and to his amazement, a large brick fell to the ground and landed right in front of him.
The man was astonished.
He carried on walking,and after a while he went to cross the road.
Once again he heard the voice shout, “Stop! Stand still! If you take one more step a car will run over you, and you will die”.
The man did as he was instructed, just as a car came careening around the corner, barely missing him.
The man asked, “Who are you?”
“I am your guardian angel”, the voice answered.
“Oh, yeah?” the man asked “And where the heck were you when I got married?”
