Spectacles

Soon after their last child left home for college, a husband was resting. Next to him on the couch was his wife with her head in his lap. She carefully removed his glasses.

"You know, honey," she said sweetly, "Without your glasses, you look like the same handsome young man I married."

"Honey," he replied with a grin, "Without my glasses, you still look pretty good too!"

Guide dog

When the store manager returned from lunch, he noticed his clerk's hand was bandaged. Before he could ask about the bandage, the clerk said he had some very good news for him."Guess what, sir?" the clerk said. "I finally sold that terrible, ugly suit we've had so long!"

"Do you mean that repulsive pink and blue double-breasted thing?" the manager asked. "That's great!" the manager cried, "I thought we'd never get rid of that monstrosity! That had to be the ugliest suit we've ever had! But tell me, why is your hand bandaged?"

"Oh that," the clerk replied, "after I sold the guy that suit, his guide dog bit me."

 


Practising

The doctor was making his rounds and walked into the semi-private room in the hospital to examine Mrs. Williams. After examining her, in his best professional voice, he said smoothly, "You are coughing much more easily this morning."

"I should," snapped the patient, "I've been practising all night."
