Here is a joke. Bear with me. My brother George is always saying how much he hates "prepared jokes" and normally I agree. But still.
I heard this joke the other day and cannot stop laughing about it.
An old woman is sitting on the porch drinking a glass of wine with her husband. They are there for a long time, a-sittin' and a-rockin'.
And finally the old woman says:
"I think it's time I told you, I love you, and I cannot live without you."
The husband says:
"Is that you talking, or is it the wine?"
His wife says:
"It's me talking -- and I'm talking to the wine."
Is that me in 100 years or what?
Heck, is that me right now?
You would never believe where I got this joke.
It was in our church bulletin! It had the title "Lasting Companionship."
I have told the joke to about a dozen people and all of them, when they pick themselves up off the floor, say: "That was in your church bulletin?"
Yes indeedy! Unfortunately I happened to glance at it during Mass and that was the end of my concentration.
A toast to St. Anthony of Padua Church, always cool because it was the home church of Leonard Pennario.
Even cooler now that it has printed this joke in the bulletin.
