My 'other' joke...

I love a good joke...

However...

My whole family knows I can't remember a joke to re-tell it!

The other night our son asked me 'what was that joke (that ONE joke) you used to tell ??"... (I actually have 2!)... I did post it here about a year ago, but I still love it, I still don't remember any others, and it's a good time for a smile...so here it is again...

A baby was dedicated in church one Sunday morning with his big 5 year old brother standing alongside of the parents. On the way home from church, the 5 year old could not stop crying, he cried so hard that his father finally had to pull the car off to the side of the road. The dad said 'what in the world is the matter?'

The boy said through his tears...'that preacher said he wanted us to be raised in a christian home... and I want to stay with YOU guys!"

Ah Sonja, that is a good one! I always forget the punch lines of jokes or I'm laughing too hard to tell it. My mom was a great joke teller and always had a few on hand. We used to roll our eyes when she started but now I wish I could hear another one of her jokes. :)

Thanks for you and Carol Joy's sweet, loving and encouraging comments to me on Heart Choices. You cannot know how much that means to me.

Love you sis,
Debbie

ho ho! i'm sooooo sure my kids felt that way
many times!

and i can never remember a punch line either.
my new trick is to just start jokes and ask my
husband to finish them, because he never forgets
a punch line.

Great humor!

I love jokes & riddles but, like you, my mind rarely grabs the details. Without details, I've often muddled up a joke to BECOME the joke. Aargh!!

Blessings,

I love this joke. I laugh at it last year when you posted it.
