JUST FOR LAUGHS
Say What, Dad?
Our Gen-X daughter, Cristie, made my husband a Father’s Day card entitled “Things My Dad Would Never Say” such as: “Can you turn up the music?” “Go ahead and take my truck. Here’s 50 bucks for gas.” “Here, you take the remote.”
I gave my father $100
I gave my father $100 and said, “Buy yourself something that will make your life easier.” So he went out and bought a present for my mother.
Our priest asked how things were going with my father. “Well, he has issues,” I replied, then shared a few details. After listening, he said, “Issues? Sounds like he’s got a year’s subscription.”
A lot of work for nothing
My wife asked me to help one of our neighbours, a young mother whose sailor husband was at sea. Her car had to have something called a freeze plug replaced—a job that took two days. Then I discovered the battery was dead and the starter was shot, so I fixed those too. Days later I proudly handed the woman her keys saying, “Now your car is good for many more miles.” “Thanks,” she said. “All I care is that it runs long enough to make it to the dealer. I’m trading it in tomorrow.”
