Light Moment


                                                            Wake-up Call

    A couple, retired for many years, always set their clock-radio for 7 a.m., waking to the news. One morning, their favorite romantic music from the past started playing. The husband put his arms around his wife and whispered in her ear, "Darling, if I were 40 years younger, do you know what I'd do?"
    "Yes," she murmured, snuggling closer, "I know what you'd do."
    "Tell me, sweetheart, " he sighed. "What would I do."
    "If you were 40 years younger, " she whispered, "you'd get up and go to work!"

                                                         Surprise Packages

    When my husband asked me what I wanted for my 40th birthday, I told him, "Something that will make me look sexy and beautiful." Expecting a lingerie box containing black silk and lace, I was surprised when he dragged in a large, hefty package.
    My gift was an exercise bike.

                                                            Humble Pie

    A friend of mine, a successful young doctor, was showing off his shiny new Porsche to his grandmother. After taking her for a spin, he helped her climb out of the low-slung automobile.
    "How do you like it?" he asked, beaming.
    "It's fine, I guess," she replied. "But maybe when your practice improves, you can afford something automatic with four doors."

                                                        Animal Crackers

    Ever since my aunt was a child, she wanted to have a black cat named Midnight. When one of the cats on her farm had a litter, she got her wish, except that the kitten patch of white fur under the chin. She decided that Midnight was inappropriate because it wasn't totally black. Instead she decided to name it 11:45.
