Monday Mirth

A husband and wife entered the dentist's office. The husband said, 'I want a tooth pulled. I don't want gas or Novocain because I'm in a terrible hurry. Just pull the tooth as quickly as possible.'
'You're a brave man,' said the dentist. 'Now, show me which tooth it is.'
The husband turns to his wife and says, 'Open your mouth and show the dentist which tooth it is, dear.'

 Dentist begging the patient: Could you help me? Could you give out a few of your loudest, most painful screams?
Patient: Why? Doc, it isn't all that bad this time.
Dentist: There are so many people in the waiting room right now and I don't want to miss the 4 o'clock ball game.

Hi Sweetheart,

I am sorry about getting into an argument about putting up the Christmas lights.  I guess that sometimes I feel like you are pushing me too hard when you want something.  I realize that I was wrong and I am apologizing for being such a hard-headed guy.  All I want is for you to be happy and be able to enjoy the holiday season.  Nothing brightens the Christmas spirit like Christmas lights!  I took the time to hang the lights for you today; and now I will be off to the hockey rink.

Again, I am very sorry for the way I acted yesterday.  I'll be home later.

Love you……

Hi Honey,

Thank you for that heart-felt apology.  I don't often get an apology from you, and I truly appreciate it.  I, too, felt bad about the argument and wanted to apologize.  I realize that I can sometimes be a little pushy.  I will try to respect your feelings from now on.  Thank you for taking the time to hang the Christmas lights for me.  It really means a lot.  In the spirit of giving, I washed your truck for you; and now I am off to the mall.

I love you too!

    But the last one was with the two photos was HILARIOUS!!!

    Thanks so much for the great Monday Mirth, dear lady!

  9. Hey Ron, don't even think about inventing such a perfume... lol.

  10. I love the picture of the ball of lights. That's how I feel every year we dig out the Christmas decorations. The person who hung lights like this is both a realist and a genius of the 10th order!

  11. I don't even argue anymore, I just hang the Christmas lights..I sure did like that truck :)

  12. LoL Jimmy, it looked like a very good truck, pity it got waterlogged.

  13. I love the hanging lights and washed up truck. It's Friday in my part of the world but I want to catch up with all your posts including Monday Mirth! :) Nice to be back.
