Smorgasbord Laughter Lines – Sock therapy, decluttering, cought linctus and a joke.

And the joke….. be careful what you wish for!

Walking along the beach, John tripped over a half-buried kerosene lantern. He rubbed its side and sure enough, a Genie materialized.

“I can’t grant your wishes,” explained the freed spirit, “Due to poor connectivity with the seventh dimension. But I’ll give you three off-the-shelf gifts for releasing me: a potion to cure ill health, a very large diamond, and a dinner date with a famous movie star. By tomorrow afternoon, you will have received all these gifts.”

When John returned home from work the next evening, he excitedly asked his mother if anything had been delivered.

“Yes,” she replied. “It’s been an unusual day. At 2 pm, a 55 gallon drum of chicken soup arrived.

About a half-hour later, a telegram came saying that a long-lost relative had left you a minor-league baseball stadium.

Ten minutes ago, MGM called, inviting you to dinner with Lassie tonight.”

Thanks for dropping in and I hope you are leaving with a smile on your face…. Sally.

  1. Chicken soup is terribly underrated as a cure for bad health! I had to think long to make the connection from diamond to baseball stadium (being German baseball is not in my DNA) and Lassie would have been a perfect dinner date – never interrupting me, looking at me with soulful eyes … what else can I want from a date?

  2. Living in an area known for tourists on the beach, I can attest to the fact that socks with sandals are a real turn-off! No. Just, no.

    As for the cough syrup, I would think those ingredients would have kept my ancestors HOME, chugging from the bottle while pretending to be sick.:shock: At any rate,it definitely explains some of the loonies in the family tree. 😀 (I’ve seen actual labels like this before, and it’s jaw-dropping. Kind of like the fact that Coca-Cola actually had cocaine in the original formula! Eeeeep.)
