Time to Indulge

No Such Thing As A Free Yacht

A salesman talked my uncle into buying 10,000 personalized pens for his business with the promise that ?he would be eligible to win a 32-foot yacht. A born gambler, my uncle agreed.

Well, he won, and a few weeks after the pens arrived, his prize showed up: a 12-inch plastic yacht with ?32 plastic feet glued to the bottom.   Eddie Edwards, Ripley, Tennessee


My Sword of Employer

The black lacquer stand ?holding his prized samurai swords was dusty, so my husband left our cleaning lady a note, reading, “Check out my swords.” That evening, he found the stand just as dirty as ?before but with this appended to ?his note: “Nice swords.”  Eleonore Bode-Lemming, Salem, Oregon


My Kids Don’t Know What I Do

I’ve been working on my PhD ?in engineering for the past five years, but my kids don’t necessarily see that as work.
As we were driving past Walmart one day, my son spotted a Now Hiring sign and suggested that I could get ?a job there.

Hoping to make a point, I asked, “Do you think they’re looking for an engineer?”

“Oh, sure,” he said. “They’ll hire anybody.”  Christopher Fields, Fort Collins, Colorado
