"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

3 down, no more to follow

At least, I hope no more get sick. Today, Joey woke up sneezing and congested. I really, really hope no one else gets sick.

Since my brain is fried, I don't think anything I write will make any sense. So, I thought I'd leave y'all with a joke. I laughed my ass off when I got this in my email. Enjoy...


I took my dad to the mall the other day to buy some new shoes (he is 92 years old).

We decided to grab a bite at the food court. I noticed he was watching a teenager sitting next to him. The teenager had spiked hair in all different colors: green, red, orange, and blue. My dad kept staring at him. The teenager would look up, and find him staring every time.

When the teenager had had enough, he sarcastically asked, 'What's the matter old man, never done anything wild in your life?'

Knowing my dad, I quickly swallowed my food so that I would not choke on his response, certain that he would have a good one. In classic style, he did not bat an eye in his response.

'Got drunk once, and had sex with a peacock. I was just wondering if you were my son…’

* * * * *

Don't mess with old people. They'll burn you every time.


So, do y'all have any good stories or jokes to share today?
