There is no such thing as easy caregiving – anyone who has been, or is currently, a caregiver for a loved one with Alzheimer’s or other dementia can attest to that fact. The good news, however, is that every once and awhile we’re fortunate enough to be exposed to glorious snippits of wonderfulness that help us through the day. Here’s hoping that this link does just that for you.
A truck driver stopped at a roadside diner. His waitress brought him a hamburger, a cup of coffee, and a piece of pie.
As the trucker was about to start eating, three men in leather jackets pulled up on motorcycles and came inside. One grabbed the man’s hamburger, the second one drank his coffee and the other one took his piece of pie.
The truck driver didn’t say a word. He got up, put on his jacket, paid the cashier and left.
One of the bikers said to the cashier, “Not much of a man, is he?”
“He’s not much of a driver either,” she replied. “He just ran his truck over three motorcycles.”
Three men died and went to heaven. Upon their arrival, St. Peter asked the first guy if he had been faithful to his wife. The man admitted to two affairs during his marriage. St. Peter told him that he could receive only a compact car to drive in heaven.
Then St. Peter asked the second man if he had been faithful to his wife, and the man admitted to one affair. St. Peter told him he would be given a midsize car to drive.
The third man was asked about his faithfulness, and he told St. Peter he had been true to his wife until the day he died. St. Peter praised him and gave him a luxury car to drive in heaven.
A week later, the three men were driving around, and they all stopped at a red light. The men in the compact and midsize car turned to see the man in the luxury car crying. They asked him what could possibly be the matter – after all, he was driving a luxury car!
“I just passed my wife,” he told them. “She was on a skateboard!”
In a panic, a traveler called down to the hotel’s front desk soon after checking in.
“Help!” he yelled. “I’m trapped inside my room!”
“What do you mean, trapped?”
“Well, I see three doors,” the man explained. “The first opens to a closet, and the second to a bathroom. And the third door has a ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign hanging on it.”
What’s a person to do when their common sense has taken a hike?
With Valentines Day approaching, I can’t resist this one:
A gentleman entered a busy florist shop that displayed a large sign that read:
SAY IT WITH FLOWERS!
“Wrap up one rose,” he told the florist.
“Only one?” the florist asked.
“Just one,” the customer replied. “I’m a man of few words.”
A business woman is sitting at a bar.
A man approaches her.
“Hi honey,” he says. “Want a little company?”
“Why?” asks the woman. “Do you have one for sale?”
Question: What’s the difference between ignorance and apathy?
Answer: I don’t know, and I don’t care.
At a party the hostess served a guest a cup of punch and told him it was spiked. Next, she served some to a minister.
“I would rather commit adultery than allow liquor to pass my lips!” he shouted.
Hearing this, the first man poured his punch back into the bowl and said, “I didn’t know we had a choice!”
Come on, you KNOW you want to laugh. It’s o.k. It’s just a joke.
