A young, single woman is feeling very ill and has an extensive series of tests done by her doctor. After weeks of tests and more tests, the doctor calls her in. He tells her, I have to be frank with you the test results are not good. You have an incurable disease, and it is terminal. I would think you have no more than six months to live.
Devastated, she sobbingly asks the doctor, is there anything I can do?
The doctor says, well, if I were you I would run out and marry a Fingerstyle Guitarist, preferably one with an exciting ableton live 8.
She asks, How will that help my illness?
The doctor says, “Oh it won’t help your illness; but it will make that six months seem like an eternity!”
Two elderly ladies, Ethel and Martha, had been the best of friends for over 50 years. Over the decades they had spent together, they had worked together, lived next door to each other, and even vacationed together with their husbands. In their golden years, they would meet every afternoon to play cards.
One day, as they were wrapping up a game of pinochle, Ethel looks at Martha sheepishly and says , “Now please don’t get angry with me. I know we’ve been friends for a long time, but I just can’t seem to remember your name! I’ve been wracking my brain for the past hour but it still escapes me. Please remind a forgetful old lady!”
Martha glares angrily at her. For five minutes, she doesn’t speak, only giving her friend stares of disappointment. Finally, Martha asks, “How soon do you need to know?”
Three sisters, aged 81, 83 and 85, live together. One night the 85 year old draws a bath for herself. As she sticks her foot in, she pauses. She yells to her sisters downstairs, “Was I getting in or out of the bath?”
The 83 year old shouts back loudly, “I don’t know. Let me come up there and see.” She begins walking up the stairs, panting as she wished she had one of those stair lifts she had read so much about, but then pauses . She yells to her sisters “Was I going up the stairs or down?”
The 81 year old is sitting in the living room, enjoying some tea. She listens to her sisters, shakes her head and mutters to herself, “I sure hope I never get that forgetful. Knock on wood.” She then turns and shouts, “I’ll come up there and help both of you as soon as I see who’s knocking at the door.”
