Think I'll Ever Learn?


Our lawn mower broke and wouldn't run (is that redundant?). So Judy kept hinting to me that I should get it fixed. But, somehow I always had something else to take care of first; the shed, the boat, drinking beer… always something more important to me.

Finally she thought of a clever way to make her point.

When I arrived home from working on the boat and drinking beer, I found Judy seated in the tall grass, busily snipping away with a tiny pair of scissors.

I watched silently for a short time and then went into the house. I was gone only a minute, and when I came out again I handed her a toothbrush.

I said, "Here, Hon. When you finish cutting the grass, you might as well sweep the driveway."

The doctors say I will walk again, but I will always have a limp.

I like how you insert yourself into old jokes.

I love this John. This is fantastic. I'm always taking my life in my hands with some of the things I say around here without thinking first.

Coffeypot said...

Christiejolu, I did!

Charlene, I am an old joke.

Matty, I eat a lot of shoe leater around here, too.

Hah, if thats an old joke, I've never heard it before. Funny!

And you totally deserve the thrashing she gave you : )

I shared this one with the wife. She didn't think it near as funny as I did.

Coffeypot said...

Hey Powder, hon. Yeah, it is an old joke, but if I received a thrashing everytime I pulled something like that on Judy, I would have all my mail sent to the ER.

Ed, she's a Dem, no since of humor.

All I wanna know is if you can make Judy laugh ...

Coffeypot said...

LS, All the time...and she has no since of humor at all. She cannot tell a joke, but she laughs at my comments and observatons all the time.

Psh, doctors. What do they know?

Jamie said...

LOLOL!

Poor Judy. Living with a funny man is not always easy.

Poor you. Living with a boot up your butt is not easy, either.

Thanks for the early smile, darlin. :)
