Well, it's been a looooong time between postings. *G* I'm almost at the end of my Christmas visit with my brother and his family, and it's been nice.
So, what shall I update with? First, how about a joke that my uncle told... that I don't quite understand. Truthfully speaking, neither did anybody else in the room - including my embarrassed nieces - *L*! My uncle's a great storyteller, so we didn't mind that it was a bit off-color for the room. Here's the joke - tell me what you think:
A farm boy decides to go to the great big city and make his fortune. Before he goes, his father pulls him aside and tells him, "Whatever you do, son, don't marry a city woman! Come back to the country when want to get married; you can't trust those city women."
So the young man goes off to the city and does pretty well for himself. When he finally returns home to visit his family again, lo and behold, he has a wife on his arm. His father treats her well, but when he can find a moment to talk to his son alone, they talk. "Now, son," the father says, "what was the last thing I told you before I left?!" "Dad, I know you told me not to marry a city girl - but this girl's different! She's not like the other city girls. In fact, she's kind of... well... stupid. Why, do you know that the first night we slept together, after we'd gotten married, she went and put her pillow under her ass?! Talk about stupid!"
*cough* That was the punchline, folks. I don't get it. Am I missing something? Does putting a pillow under your ass make you a slut? *L*! I got the impression that it either showed some stupidity on his part, or suggested that she was a "professional" woman. *confused* And here I thought I was wordly enough to know about these things! *G*
And now, a list of things I need to copy from my f-list once I get home and get on my computer and can download! (oldest first)
