What is your greatest fear?

Tell me a joke…
A small boy wanted a bicycle for his birthday. He asked his mother if she was willing to buy one for him. His mother told him, that she had to wonder if he had been a good boy throughout the year.
He was thinking and decided to write a letter to God.
Dear God, I know I was not very good boy, but I want a red bicycle, your friend Demetrakis.
He got no answer for a couple weeks and decided to write another letter. Again no answer.
Then he goes to church takes the icon of Jesus and Mary and goes home.
He writes now a new letter.
“Dear God, for your information, I have your mother. If you would like to see her again, send me a red bicycle”
