OK, readers, be forewarned.
I do not tell jokes well.
Hence, I rarely tell jokes at all.
However, I just returned from coffee and sinful snacks with my 90-year old friend. Her name is Anita.
She likes to tell jokes.
It’s hard to remember her jokes until I get home. Usually I try to tell Barry and botch ’em up bad.
However, this time he laughed.
Hence: Anita’s joke:
There was a husband and wife celebrating their 60th birthdays.
A fairy godmother appears and tells the man and wife that she will grant them their deepest wish.
The woman says, “I have always wanted to travel the world! I would like tickets to dozens of locations around the world.”
The fairy godmother waves her wand.
Dozens of tickets appear. The woman is ecstatic!
The fairy godmother turns to the husband.
“What would you like?” she asks.
He thinks–and very quickly says–
“I would like a woman thirty years younger,” he says.
The fairy godmother nods, and waves her wand, and WA-LA!!–
The man is now 90 years old.
(I hope you are all laughing now. I laughed when 90-year old Anita told it. Barry laughed when I told him. Let’s hope it’s just as funny in print. If not, try to imagine Anita telling you… If it’s still not funny, drink some more coffee and have another brownie.)
If any of you readers have a nice funny–clean–that means not sinfully dirty–joke to tell, please comment and share. I’m sure the rest of us would appreciate a laugh. I reserve the write (pun intended) to edit racy jokes. I’ll laugh and then erase ’em.
