James Dobson author, psychologist, and founder of Focus on the Family tells the story of a friend of his during their days in medical school. One day this man was walking across campus laden with books and briefcase. He passed by a fast food stand, and ordered something to eat and a milkshake to wash it down. Using his briefcase as a tray he confidently balanced it all on top of the case and began looking for an empty table at which to sit.

While looking, the thought of the milkshake got the better of him, so without looking he bent down in order to take a sip from the straw. Unfortunately the straw missed his mouth and ended up in his nose.

Embarrassed, but not at a loss, he thought that if he straightened up the straw would stay in the shake. But when he lifted his head, the straw came out of the shake and remained in his nose, dripping the milkshake down the front of his suit.

James Dobson says in that moment, all his confidence evaporated.
