They Grow Up So Fast
A father passing by his son's bedroom was astonished to see the bed was nicely made, and everything was picked up. Then, he saw an envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow. It was addressed, "Dad." With the worst premonition, he opened the envelope and read the letter, with trembling hands...
"Dear, Dad. It is with regret and sorrow I'm writing to you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mom and you. I've been finding real passion with Stacy, and she is so nice, but I knew you would not approve of her because of her piercings, tattoos, tight motorcycle clothes, and because she is much older than I. But it's not only the passion, Dad.
She's pregnant. Stacy said that we will be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children.
Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone. We'll be growing it for ourselves, and trading it with other people in the commune, for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want. In the meantime, we'll pray that science will find a cure for AIDS, so Stacy can get better. She sure deserves it!
Don't worry, Dad. I'm 15 and know how to take care of myself. Someday, I'm sure we'll be back to visit, so you can know your many grandchildren.
Love, your son, Joshua.
P.S. Dad, none of the above is true. I'm over at Jason's house. I wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than the school report that's on the kitchen table. Call when it is safe for me to come home!
John and Mary were having dinner in a very fine restaurant. Their waitress, taking another order at a table a few paces away, noticed that John was ever so slowly, silently sliding down his chair and under the table, while Mary acted quite unconcerned.
Their waitress watched as John slid all the way down his chair and out of sight under the table. Still, Mary appeared calm and unruffled, apparently unaware that John had disappeared under the table.
After the waitress finished taking the order, she came over and said to Mary, "Pardon me, ma'am, but I think your husband just slid under the table."
Mary calmly looked up at her and replied firmly, "Oh, no. He did not. In fact, he just walked in the front door."
The Dancing Gardener
A wealthy woman was giving a garden party, and several well-to-do guests attended. While the party ensued, two gardeners were out on the back lawn working. One of the guests was watching the gardeners do their thing, and while one gardener was busy weeding, the other jumped up and did graceful swirling dance movements.
Taken by his grace, the guest remarked to the host, "That man is such a talented dancer, that I'd pay him a hundred dollars to demonstrate his dancing before my aerobics class!"
When the host asked the first gardener about such an arrangement, she yelled, "Hey Fred! Do you think for a hundred dollars you could step on that rake again?"

Bill looks at him and says, "To your house."
A man and woman had been married for more than 60 years. They had shared everything. They had talked about everything. They had kept no secrets from each other except that the little old woman had a shoebox in the top of her closet that she had cautioned her husband never to open or ask her about.
For all of these years, he had never thought about the box, but one day the little old woman got very sick and the doctor said she would not recover.
In trying to sort out their affairs, the little old man took down the shoe box and took it to his wife's bedside. She agreed that it was time that he should know what was in the box. When he opened it, he found two crocheted dolls and a stack of money totaling $95,000.
He asked her about the contents.
'When we were to be married,' she said, ' my grandmother told me the secret of a happy marriage was to never argue. She told me that if I ever got angry with you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doll.'
The little old man was so moved; he had to fight back tears. Only two precious dolls were in the box. She had only been angry with him two times in all those years of living and loving. He almost burst with Happiness.
'Honey,' he said, 'that explains the doll, but what about all of this money? Where did it come from?'
'Oh,' she said, 'that's the money I made from selling the dolls.
A woman is hurrying along a sidewalk when she hears a voice: "Stop! Don't take another step!"
The woman freezes and notices that with one more step she would have stumbled over a raised part of the pavement.
She moves on somewhat shaken when she hears the voice again: "Stop! Don't do it!!"
She stops, petrified, and realizes that she had almost walked into a lamp post. She leans against it to compose herself when she hears the voice again, this time quite relaxed: "I am your guardian angel," says the voice, "I assume you might have a question or two to ask me."
"Just one," answers the woman. "Where were you on my wedding day???!!!"

The first woman says, "My fiancée works as a marriage counselor. He always buys me flowers and candy. I like that."

The third woman shakes her head and says, "My fiancée works in marketing. He just sits around and tells me how great our marriage is going to be."

He looks around - there's nobody near him. He hears the voice again, "No really, you look terrific." The guy looks around again. Nobody.

"If I go too fast," said the Porsche driver, "honk your horn."
So the Porsche set off with the Yugo in tow.
A few miles down the road, a Corvette pulled alongside the Porsche. The Corvette driver called out, "I bet I can outrace you with that thing in tow behind you."

The other said, "Yeah. And what about that little Yugo flying along behind them, honking his horn, trying to pass?"

Carefully and gently he began to explain, leaving nothing out, telling her all about human reproduction and the joys and responsibilities of sex. When he finished explaining, the little girl was looking at him with her mouth hanging open, eyes wide in amazement.
Seeing the look on her face, the grandfather asked her, "Why did you ask me this question, honey?"

Smack Him Again!
Due to a power outage, only one paramedic responded to the call.

The mom pushed and pushed and after a little while, Connor was born.
The paramedic lifted him by his little feet and spanked him on his bottom. Connor began to cry.

I quickly replied, "Nope, I'm free!"
"Great," she said. "Can you look after my dog?"

"What's this?" the preacher asked.
"Money," said Jonathan with a big smile on his face. "It's for you."
"I don't want to take your money, Jonathan," the preacher answered.
"I want you to have it," said Jonathan. After a short pause, Jonathan continued, "My daddy says you're the poorest preacher we have ever had and I want to help you."
The Good Husband
Several men are in the locker room of a golf club. A cell phone on a bench rings and a man engages the hands-free speaker function and begins to talk. Everyone else in the room stops to listen.
WOMAN: "Hi Honey, it's me. Are you at the club?"
WOMAN: "I'm at the shops now and found this beautiful leather coat. It's only $2,000; is it OK if I buy it?"
MAN: "Sure, go ahead if you like it that much."
WOMAN: "I also stopped by the Lexus dealership and saw the new models. I saw one I really liked."
MAN: "How much?"
MAN: "OK, but for that price, I want it with all the options."
WOMAN: "Great! Oh, and one more thing... I was just talking to Janie and found out that the house I wanted last year is back on the market. They're asking $2,200,000 for it."
MAN: "Well, then go ahead and make an offer of $2,000,000. They'll probably take it. If not, we can go the extra two-hundred-thousand if it's what you really want."
WOMAN: "OK. I'll see you later! I love you so much!"
MAN: "Bye! I love you, too."
The man hangs up. The other men in the locker room are staring at him in astonishment, mouths wide open.
He turns and asks, "Anyone know whose phone this is?"
