Dinner party

Becky prepared a pasta dish for a dinner party she was
giving. In her haste, however, she forgot to refrigerate the
spaghetti sauce, and it sat on the counter all day. She was
worried about spoilage, but it was too late to cook up
another batch.

She called the local Poison Control Center and voiced her
concern. They advised Becky to boil the sauce again.

That night, the phone rang during dinner, and one of the
guests volunteered to answer it. Becky’s face dropped as the
guest called out, “It’s the Poison Control Center. They want
to know how the spaghetti sauce turned out.”


Fresh Air and Sunshine

You’re in incredible shape,” the doctor said. “How old are you again?”

“I’m 78.” The man said.

“78?” asked the doctor. “How do you stay so healthy? You look like a 60 year old.”

“Well,” the man explained, “my wife and I made a pact when we got married that whenever she got mad with me, she would go into the kitchen and cool off and I would go outside to settle down.”

“What does that have to do with it?” asked the doctor.

“I’ve pretty much lived an outdoor life.”




A set of screwdrivers,
a cordless drill, and
a black lace bra..

One friend who
Always makes her Laugh…
And one
Who lets her cry…

A good piece of furniture
not previously owned by
Anyone else in her family…

Eight matching plates,
Wine glasses with stems,
And a recipe for a meal that will
Make her guests feel honored.

A feeling of control over
Her destiny…

How to fall in love
Without losing herself…

How to quit a Job
Break up with a lover
and confront a friend without ruining the friendship

When to try harder… and

That she can’t change
The length of her calves,
The width of her hips, or
The nature of her parents…

That her childhood
May not have been
Its over…

What she would and
Do for love or more…

How to live alone…
even if
She doesn’t like it…

Whom she can trust,
Whom she can’t,
And why she shouldn’t
Take it personally…

Where to go…
Be it to her best friend’s kitchen table..
Or a charming inn in the woods…
When her soul needs soothing…

What she can and can’t accomplish
In a day…
A month..

And a year.

The man then pleads, “I don’t know why, but I’m telling you, I’m certain she’s poisoning me. What should I do?”

Dinner Guest

A woman was walking down the street when she was accosted by a particularly dirty and

shabby-looking homeless woman who asked her for a couple of dollars for dinner.

The woman took out her bill fold, extracted ten dollars and asked, “If I give you this

money, will you buy some wine with it instead of dinner?”

“No, I had to stop drinking years ago,” the homeless woman replied.

“Will you use it to go shopping instead of buying food?” the woman asked.

“No, I don’t waste time shopping,” the homeless woman said. “I need to spend all my time

trying to stay alive.”

“Will you spend this on a beauty salon instead of food?” the woman asked.

“Are you NUTS!” replied the homeless woman. “I haven’t had my hair done in
20 years!”

“Well,” said the woman, “I’m not going to give you the money. Instead, I’m going to take

you out for dinner with my hubby and myself tonight.”

The homeless woman was astounded. “Won’t your husband be furious with you for doing that?

I know I’m dirty, and I probably smell pretty disgusting.”

The woman replied, “That’s okay. It’s important for him to see what a woman looks like

after she has given up shopping, hair appointments and wine.”

The lawn mower

The lawn mower

A preacher was making his rounds to his parishioners on a
bicycle, when he came upon a Delbert trying to sell a lawn
“How much do you want for the mower?” asked the preacher.
“I just want enough money to go out and buy my kid a bicycle,”
said Delbert.
After a moment of consideration, the preacher asked, “Will
you take my bike in trade for it?”
Delbert said, “Mister, you’ve got yourself a deal.”
The preacher took the mower and tried to start it.  He pulled
and pulled on the rope until he was dripping with sweat but
the mower refuse to start.
The preacher called Delbert over and said, “I can’t get
this mower to start.”
Delbert said, “That’s because you have to cuss at it to
get it started.”
The preacher said, “I’m a man of the church and I can’t cuss.
It’s been so long since I’ve been saved that I don’t even
remember how to cuss.”
Delbert looked at him happily and said,
“Just keep pulling on that rope. It’ll come back to ya.”
