Life’s Like That
SEEING THE FUNNY SIDE
CHECK THIS OUT
After sending several emails to the wrong people, plus making silly spelling mistakes, I knew I needed to get my eyes checked.
This fact became all the more obvious when one day I screamed at my friend to stop the car, leaping out to help a little old man bent over at the side of the road.
‘He’ turned out to be nothing more than a large, freestanding rubbish bin.
But the final straw was when I followed the wrong person around the supermarket, putting things in his trolley.

After confirming her pregnancy, my friend told her four-year-old daughter about the new brother or
sister on the way. She made it clear that the baby’s arrival would be some time away. Her husband came home, and the family had dinner and discussed the good news. Finally, it was time for bed, and the little girl, suddenly very distressed, said to her mother, “I know you said it would be a long time until we got our baby, but this is just ridiculous.” SUBMITTED BY JANET SIMMONDS
I taught my three year old, Nick, to count to ten when he started getting angry, which was becoming a more frequent problem. It wasn’t long before I had an occasion to remind him, “Count to ten, Nick. Count to ten!”
So he started: “One, two, three,” and so on, until he ended with “... 11, 12.”
It was quiet for a few seconds while I looked at him and he looked at me.
Then, with a knowing expression and a nod of his head, he very seriously said, “Some people need to count to 12.” SUBMITTED BY MARY LOU HUDEK
