You can hide and buy ground . . .
Lord, who shall dwell in Thy tabernacle: or who shall rest upon Thy holy hill? He that sweareth unto his neighbour: and disappointeth him not: though it were on his own hindrance. ( Psalm 15: 1 & 5) On Wednesday, February 13, when I turned my radio to the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation, I heard a strange but familiar voice that evening. It was none other than Sharon Millington from the famous Afternoon Delight show on the Voice Of Barbados.
She fitted right back into radio after being absent for so many years. She dealt with the topic
Lies. A male caller said he worked on Sundays and after work he, his male friends and his significant other usually attended the cinema. He told his significant other that he could not make it one Sunday because he was working late and took another woman to the cinema.
Everything went well there. The next day his significant other told him where he went, what clothes he was wearing and what clothes the woman wore. His male friends told him that his significant other sat right behind him. I got the laugh of my life and then Millington played Sue Thompson’s Sad Movies Always Make Me Cry.
That man’s story only shows what can happen when a person is dishonest. Barbados is too small to indulge in such behaviour.
There is an old saying: “Honesty is the best policy”. I hope that those who heard that programme and those who read this column will remember another old saying: “You can hide and buy ground, but you can’t hide and work it”.
Ms Millington, may God continue to direct and bless you.
