In the meantime.......*"A cop pulled me over and told me "Papers". So I said "Scissors, I win!" and drove off."
 
*"I don't drink or do drugs. At my age I get the same effect just standing up too fast!"
 
*"I don’t let my age define me but the side-effects are getting harder to ignore."
 
*"Teenager, Billy lost a contact lens while playing basketball in his driveway. After a brief but fruitless search, Billy gave up. His mother took up the cause and within minutes she’d found the lens. “How did you do that?” he asked. “We weren’t looking for the same thing Billy,” she explained. “You were looking for a small piece of plastic. I was looking for $150.”
 
*"Little Johnny went into the store and after some searching around he picked out a large box of laundry detergent. Having been observing Johnny for a few minutes, the store assistant asked him whether he had a lot of laundry to do. “No”, said Johnny, “I’m not doing any laundry. I’m going to wash my little dog.” The store assistant frowned at him and said, “Listen sonny, that’s a powerful detergent and far too strong for washing a small dog. It could make him ill or perhaps even kill him if you’re not careful.” Undeterred Little Johnny said he’d take the detergent anyway, then he paid the man and left the store. A week later Little Johnny was back in the store to buy a Hershey bar. The store assistant saw him and said, “Hey Johnny how’s your little dog?” “Oh, he died,” said Little Johnny. “I’m sorry to hear that son but I did warn you about that detergent,” the store assistant replied. “I don’t think it was the detergent,” said Little Johnny. “Really?” said the store assistant, “So what was it then?” “He looked like he was coping very well until the washing machine went into the spin cycle,” Little Johnny replied."
 
Until next week, please stay safe and healthy!
