While there someone asked her, "and what unfortunate creature had to die for you to wear that coat?"
Glaring at them, she responded, "my aunt!"
A distraught senior citizen phoned her doctor's office, "Is it true," she wanted to know, "that the medication you prescribed has to be taken for the rest of my life?"
"Yes, I'm afraid so," the doctor told her.
There was a moment of silence before she replied, "I'm wondering, then, just how serious is my condition because this prescription is marked 'NO REFILLS.'"
Last year I replaced several windows in my house and they were the expensive double-pane energy-efficient kind.
This week I got a call from the contractor complaining that his work has been completed for a whole year and I had yet to pay
Boy, oh boy, did we go 'round.
Just because I'm getting old doesn't mean that I am automatically stupid.
So, I proceeded to tell him just what his fast talking sales guy had told me last year . . .
"that in one year the windows would pay for themselves."
There was silence on the other end of the line so I just hung up and I haven't heard back.
Guess I must have won that silly argument.
[Editor's Comment: It is amazing that this blog, "Lighten Up With Laughter," has become the most popular item in Hugh's News. I had resisted doing it for a long time. However, Lonnie Rex, of Spring, TX, a bedroom community of Houston, kept after me and I finally gave in. I was wrong, and Lonnie was right. It's good to have friends like Lonnie who are persistent and persuasive.]
