LONN AND I were involved in a petty argument, both of us unwilling to admit we might be in error. "I'll admit I'm wrong," I told my husband in a conciliatory attempt, "if you'll admit I'm right." He agreed and, like a gentleman, insisted I go first. "I'm wrong," I said. With a twinkle in his eye, he responded, "You're right!" -- Contributed to Reader's Digest "Life In These United States" by Jeannine Buckley
A couple had been married for 25 years and also celebrated their 60th birthdays. During the celebration a fairy appeared and said that because they had been such a loving couple all those years, she would give them one wish each.
The wife wanted to travel around the world. The fairy waved her wand and boom! She had the tickets in her hand.
Next, it was the husband's turn. He paused for a moment, then said shyly, "Well, I'd like to have a woman 30 years younger than me." The fairy picked up her wand and boom! He was 90!!
"OLD" IS WHEN...
An "all-nighter" means not getting up to pee!
WHEN MY daughter's kindergarten class visited a fire station, I agreed along with two other fathers to be a parent helper. After the tour, we led the children through the downtown area to the bus stop, trying to keep the stragglers in line. At a busy intersection, we managed with difficulty to get everyone across before the light changed. One of the other fathers looked wearily at me. "Kind of gives you new respect for a mother duck," he said, sighing. -- Contributed to Reader's Digest "Life In These United States" by Dana B. Martin
