The Importance of Saying the Right Thing at the Right Time…

First, I would like to thank everyone who sent me birthday messages in various forms (e-cards, photos of beautiful flowers, e-mails etc.). No way I can answer every single message, but I want you all to know that I appreciated everything! Grazie!

A friend (thanks!) sent me a joke that gave me a good chuckle yesterday. Keep ’em coming! 🙂 Here goes:

The morning after attending his company’s anniversary party, Jack wakes up with a huge hangover. He doesn’t even remember how he got home from the party. He is troubled by a vague feeling that he did something wrong.

He forces himself to open his eyes, and the first thing he sees are a couple of aspirins and a glass of water on the bed table. He sits up and sees his clothing laid out in front of him, clean and pressed.

He looks around the room and notices that it is in perfect order, spotless and tidy, as is the rest of the house. He takes the aspirins, but then cringes when he sees a huge black eye staring back at him in the bathroom mirror.

Then he sees a note stuck to the corner of the mirror: “Honey, breakfast is on the stove, I left early to get groceries to make you your favorite dinner tonight. I love you, darling! Love, Jillian”

He staggers into the kitchen, and sure enough, there is a hot breakfast, steaming hot coffee and the morning newspaper. His son is also at the table, eating.

Jack asks, “Son…what happened last night?”

“Well, you came home after 3 A.M., drunk and delirious. You fell over the coffee table and broke it, you were sick in the hallway, and you got that black eye when you stumbled into the door.”

Confused, he asked, “So, why is everything in such perfect order and so clean, and breakfast is on the table waiting for me???”

His son replies, “Oh THAT!… Mom dragged you to the bedroom, and when she tried to take your pants off, you yelled, “Lady, leave me alone, I’m married!!!”
