On their way home from attending an church service, little Johnny asked his mother, “Is it true, Mommy, that we are made of dust like the minister said tonight?”
“Yes, darling,” his mother answered.
“And is it true that we go back to dust again when we die?”
“Yes, dear,” his mother replied.
“Well, Mommy, when I said my prayers last night and looked under the bed, I saw someone who is either coming or going!”
The HMO account manager noticed that nearly every bill from a certain pediatrician’s office included the line item “Behavior modification reinforcers.”
Alarmed that the pediatrician was engaging in some unapproved, experimental psychological treatment, she called the physician’s office to inquire, “What on earth are behavior modification reinforcers?”
“Lollipops,” was the reply.
Many years ago, when my 9 year old daughter was 3, we went to our usual Sunday morning church service. We were seated and waiting for the service to begin, when this woman walked by us in a really bright, gaudy dress. My husband, who never says anything about anyone, even made a comment about how “loud” the dress was.
After the service was over, we were standing outside the church chatting with another couple. I couldn’t see my daughter and then I noticed her standing right next to (practically on top of) the woman with the dress. When I asked her what she was doing, she said “I’m trying to hear this dress mom. Dad said it was really loud, but I haven’t heard it make a peep yet.”
Everyone within earshot, with the exception of my husband and the woman in the dress burst out laughing. My husband wanted to crawl in a hole, and I have to say I never saw that particular dress worn again.
