When I'm a little old lady
Then I'll live with my children and bring them great joy
To repay all I've had from each girl and boy.
I shall draw on the walls and scuff up the floor;
Run in and out without closing the door.
I'll hide frogs in the pantry, socks under my bed,
Whenever they scold me, I'll just hang my head.
I'll run and I'll romp, always fritter away
The time to be spent doing chores every day.
I'll pester my children when they're on the phone
As long as they're busy, won't leave them alone.
Hide candy in closets, rocks in a drawer,
And never pick up my clothes from the floor.
Dash off to the movies and not wash a dish,
I'll plead for allowance whenever I wish.
I'll stuff up the plumbing and deluge the floor,
As soon as they've mopped it, I'll flood it some more.
When they correct me, I'll lie down and cry,
Kicking and screaming, not a tear in my eye.
i'll take all their pencils and flashlights, and then,
When they buy new ones, I'll take them again.
I'll spill glasses of milk to complete every meal,
eat my banana and just drop the peel.
Put toys on the table, spill jam on the floor,
I'll break lots of dishes as though i were four.
What fun I shall have, What a joy it will be
To live with my children like they lived with me!
Susie Lee fell in love.
She planned to marry Joe.
She was so happy 'bout it all,
she told her Pappy so.
Pappy told her, "Susie Gal,
you'll have to find another.
I'd just as soon yo' maw don't know,
but Joe is yo' half-brother."
So Susie forgot about her Joe
and planned to marry Will.
But, after telling Pappy this,
he said, "There's trouble still.
You can't marry Will, my gal,
and please don't tell yo' mother,
cause Will and Joe and several mo'
I know is yo' half-brother."
But Mama knew and said "Honey Child,
Do what makes yo' happy.
Marry Will or marry Joe,
you ain't no kin to Pappy!"
Attending a wedding for the first time, a little girl whispered to her mother, "Why is the bride dressed in white?"
"Because white is the color of happiness, and today is the happiest day of her life," her mother explained, keeping it simple.
The child thought for a moment and said, "So why is the groom wearing black?"
A couple of women moved in across the hall from me. One is a middle-aged gym teacher and the other is a social worker in her mid-twenties. These two women go everywhere together and I've never seen a man go into their apartment or come out. Do you think they could be Lebanese?
How To Drive Men Crazy!
1. Do not say what you mean. Ever.
2. Cry. Cry often.
3. Bring things up that were said, done, or thought years, months,
or decades ago...or with other boyfriends.

Whine when they don't comply.

his gun collection, his quick trigger finger,
and his affection for his Little Princess.

9. Criticize the way they dress.
10. Talk about your ex-boyfriend 24 - 7. Compare and contrast.
An airline captain was helping a new blonde flight attendant prepare for her first overnight trip.
Upon their arrival, the captain showed the flight attendant the best place for airline personnel to eat, shop, and stay overnight. The next morning, as the pilot was preparing
the crew for the day's route, he noticed the new stewardess was missing.
He knew which room she was in at the hotel and called her up to ask what happened to her She answered the phone, crying, and said, "I can't get out of the room!"
"You can't get out of your room?"; the captain asked. "Why not?"
She replied, "There are only three doors in here," she sobbed... "one is the bathroom, one is the closet, and one has a sign on it that says 'Do Not Disturb'!
A 7 year-old and his 4 year-old brother are upstairs in their bedroom. The 7 year-old is explaining that it is about time that the two of them begin swearing. When his little brother responds enthusiastically, the 7 year old says, "When we go downstairs for breakfast this morning, I'll say 'hell' and you say 'ass'." The 4 year-old happily agrees.
As the two boys are seating themselves at the breakfast table, their mother walks in and asks her older son what he would like to eat for breakfast. The 7 year-old replies, "Aw hell, Mom, I'll just have some Cheerios."
The surprised mother reacts quickly and smacks his rear. WHACK! The boy runs upstairs, bawling and rubbing his behind.
With a sterner note in her voice, the mother then asks the
younger son, "And what would YOU like for breakfast?"
"I don't know," the 4 year-old blubbers, "but you can bet your ASS it's not gonna be Cheerios!"
