If you can’t beat them, arrange 
to have them beaten.
George Carlin

````````````````````````````

My teenage patient’s mother was concerned. “He must have a temperature,” she said. “He hasn’t taken our motorcycle out all day.”

“Let me ask you,” I said. “Do you have a thermometer?”

“No,” she said. “A Kawasaki.”

````````````````````````

Which West is that?

“Why did you choose a college so far from home?” I asked my British student.

She explained that she’d fallen 
in love with the American West by watching Westerns. So when it came time to apply for colleges, she Googled “Western universities.”

And that’s how she ended up here, at Western Carolina University.

````````````````````````

The Wrong Language

I tried to explain to a client why I couldn’t help him with a project that was written in a program code that I didn’t know.

“Let’s say you’re asking me to write something in a specific language. Now, I’m fluent in English and Spanish, but your project is in Chinese. Since 
I don’t understand Chinese, I’m not your best option. You need someone who is fluent in this specific language. See?”

He said he did and thanked me.

The next morning, I got a call from another developer asking, “Why is 
So-and-So asking us if we’re fluent 
in Chinese?”

````````````````````````````

A Late Graduation

At the age of 55, I finally got 
my bachelor’s degree and set out to 
become a substitute teacher. One day, a seventh grader asked if I’d been teaching long.

“Actually, I’m brand-new,” I told him. “I just graduated.”

Looking me up and down, he asked, “How long were you in college?”

``````````````````````

An Army of None

We were an Air Force family, but our son could not grasp that 
fact. Anytime someone asked what his father did, he’d say, “He’s in the Army.” I told him umpteen times, “Stop telling people I’m in the Army!” It finally seemed to hit home because on the admittance form 
for kindergarten, under “father’s 
profession,” the teacher wrote, “He doesn’t know what his father does, but he’s not in the Army.”

`````````````````````

Winter Punderland

As we waited for a bus in the frosty weather, the woman next to me mentioned that she makes a lot of mistakes when texting in the cold.

I nodded knowingly. “It’s the early signs of typothermia.”

```````````````````

es That Come in Super-Size?

A friend was ordering her meal at a drive-through when she noticed she could get a side dish gratis.

“And I’ll take the free wiffie also,” she said.

“What?” asked the clerk.

“The free wiffie,” she said, pointing to the sign.

“Ma’am, that’s ‘Free Wi-Fi.’ ”

```````````````````````````

Let Minnow

My husband and I were relaxing on lounge chairs on a Jamaica beach, half listening to a couple walking 
ankle deep in the clear water. The woman was extolling the beauty of the island when suddenly she let out a scream.

“Oh!” she shrieked. “There are fish in here!”

``````````````````````````````

Good morning everyboomie. welcome

We have had very mild weather. It was 10 degrees the other day but the next was back up to 40. I wouldn't have minded a white Christmas, but these temps are nice. Stay safe if you need to venture out Marian.

Good morning everyone. Ana, it's going to be in the upper 80's here on Friday, so not Christmas. L4L, Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter, White Chocolate Macadamia Nut, and Triple Chocolate Chunk cookies. To all here and all who stop by later, have a Wonderful Tuesday. Robert took Cyndi and I to look at the Christmas lights last night. There are some Outstanding displays in some areas. I love Christmas! Danish, BB Pancakes, and Bacon Sandwiches in the NC. tree

Today right now it is 76 on the back porch and that's in the shade and the sun would burn a hole in your forehead and the kits are stretched out on the front porch in the sun -just a'soakin' it up. Loveitloveitloveit

Those Christmas cookies sound good Connie -how about a peanut butter one. Which reminds me, why did I buy the big jar of p-butter crunchy? Maybe some p'butter cookies here soon? Gotta get busy.

On to sudoku then to more serious gaming. That wolfenstein game, the new order is good

Hey everybody. santa

It's been a beautiful day here. I got off of work at 2:00 and rushed home. I've been taking both dogs for a walk as soon as I get home. The weather here is scary too. It's Spring in December. cool

After I walk the dogs I prop the door open because the little one loves going out in the yard and keeping guard over the house. She barks at everyone who comes into sight. lab

Baby tries to play with her and she runs circles around her. puppy

So anyway it's nice that the weather is so pleasant. bravo12

My friend that I got the dog from is coming out to visit. I'd better get out of here. wink12

Enjoy your evening everyone. smile12
