Unwarranted Remark

Today I bought a gizmo.  There’s

a warranty, I see.

It’s very brief.  Not so of the list

Of questions posed for me.

The makers want my name, address.

They want the dealer’s too.

The type of store?  My hometown’s size?

What color were the salesman’s eyes?

How numerous the queries that

The warrantors devise.

How few the situations where

Their warranty applies!

I will be out of town for a few days…posting will resume Saturday.

In the meantime, enjoy the archives and be safe out there.

Money issues

A teenage was enthusiastically describing her new boyfriend to her father.

“He sounds very nice dear.” said the father, “but does he have any money?”

“Oh, you men are all alike,” answered the girl.

“Bob asked the same thing about you.”

On the greens

A golfer teed off and accidentally hit a bystander on the head.

Enraged, the bystander yelled, “I am going to sue you for $5000.”

The golfer replied, “I said ‘fore'”

The bystander answered, “Okay, I’ll take it.”

Listener’s Lament

For good conversation

A wise man once said;

“To be a good listener,

Try quiet instead.”

After years of this plan

I now slowly burn;

When do talkers listen

So I get my turn?

Coming out even

Behold the salesman fat and jolly

Who, when he travels, eats, by golly!

And see the other, lean and brittle;

Out on the road he eats but little.

Each, whom of course we shall not name,

Turns in accounts about the same.

The thing about each of these gents is-

One pads himself, one pad expenses.

Homesick

The little girl was visiting her aunt.  It was the first time she had been away from home.  After the first two days, the novelty had worn off and she began to cry.

“You aren’t homesick are you?” her aunt chided gently.

“No” was the tearful response, “I’m here sick.”

Point of View

“It isn’t if you win or lose.

But how you play the game,”

Is an admirable philosophy

And true; but just the same

I note it’s mostly uttered with

A condescending grin

By the people whom I play against,

That is, by those who win.

(f.w.)

Work as if you were to live 100 years.

Pray as if you were to die tomorrow.
