Now on to sad theme. The oldest person in the world died today. Maria Esther, from Ecuador passed away hopefully peacefully, after reaching an impressive age of 116 years old. Before she died, she was repeating the words, "I want to be young again" and at times called to a dead daughter, asking her "to come, take me with you". You never know, she might have been in a place where she was half way between the afterlife and our life and may have thought that she could see her daughter. Anyway, she has died now. I only wish I could live that long... actually on second thoughts no! lol.
Anyway... I think that will be sufficient for today's entry, but I leave you with something my cousin, Shelly sent me. It is a joke story thingy. Actually she is my second cousin, but who cares.
The Perfect Husband...
Several men are in the changing room of a golf club. A mobile phone on a bench rings and a man engages the hands free speaker-function and began to talk.
Everyone else in the room stops to listen.
WOMAN: "Darling, it's me. Are you at the club?"
WOMAN: "I am at the shopping centre and found this beautiful leather coat. It's only £1,000. Is it OK if I buy it?"
MAN: "Sure...go ahead if you like it that much."
WOMAN: "I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the new 2005 models. I saw one I really liked."
MAN: "How much?"
MAN: "OK, but for that price I want it with all the options."
WOMAN: "Great! Oh, and one more thing .. The house I wanted last year is back on the market. They're asking £950,000"
MAN: "Well, then go ahead and give them an offer of 900,000. They will probably take it. If not, we can go the extra 50 thousand. It really is a pretty good price."
WOMAN: "OK. I'll see you later! I love you so much!!"
MAN: "Bye! I love you, too."
The man hangs up. The other men in the changing room are staring at him in astonishment, mouths agape.....
He smiles and asks:
"Anyone knows whose phone is this?"
