Like A Child

I'm sorry my friends, but it's been a work week chock full of 12-hour shifts plus added responsibilities at the old Post Office, so just the joke today.


Two senior citizens, Morris and Sylvester, are having a chat over coffee one morning, and Morris is complaining about his wife.

"Every time we go to the grocery store together, she treats me like a child!" Morris says.

"And how's that?" Sylvester asks.

"Honestly, if I reach for something on the shelf that looks good, she slaps my hand and says, 'Too much cholesterol!' If I just point to something I want, she shakes her head no and says, 'It will upset your tummy.' "

"So," Sylvester wonders, "what do you do about it?"

Morris sips his coffee and replies, "Well, finally I get tired of her doing that, jump out of the cart, and get it myself."

[Sorry, I can't recall the source. Must be age....]


WISDOM for YOUR WEEK: "Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God -- children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God." (John 1:12-13)
