My boss, who is on vacation, phoned me today. He said, “Is everything OK at the office?” I said “It’s all under control. It’s been a very busy day. I haven’t stopped to take a break all day.”
“Can you do me a favor?” he asked.
I said, “Of course, What is it?”
“Pick up the pace a little. I’m in the foursome behind you.”
A father told each of his three children when he sent them to off to college, “I feel it’s my duty to provide you with the best possible education, and you do not owe me anything for that. However, I want you to appreciate it. As a token, please each put $1,000 into my coffin when I die”.
And so it happened. His sons became a doctor and a financial planner – each very successful financially. His daughter went into law and pursued a career in government. When their father’s time had come, as they saw their father in the coffin, each remembered his wish.
First, the doctor put 10 newly printed crisp $100 bills onto the chest of the deceased.
Then, the financial planner also put $1,000 there in 20 newly printed crisp $50 bills.
Finally, it was the heartbroken lawyer’s turn. She reached into her purse and took out her checkbook, then wrote a check for $3,000, put it into her father’s coffin, and took the $2,000 cash. You probably recall that she was defeated last November in the 2016 Presidential Election….
She’s single… She lives right across the street. I can see her place from my kitchen window. I watched as she got home from work this evening. I was surprised when she walked across the street, up my driveway and knocked on the door.
I opened the door, she looked at me and said, “I just got home, and I have this strong urge to have a good time, dance, get drunk, and get laid tonight. Are you doing anything?”
I quickly replied, “Nope, I’m free!”
“Great,” she said. “Can you watch my dog?”
From Jules (in Britain):
Have a great Friday.
