Wisdom From A Laugh 93, 94

  1. 1. The Obituary A miserly old woman walked into the local newspaper office to have an obituary written for her husband who died a couple of days ago. The person in charge at the office told her that the fee for the obituary was one dollar per word. The woman thought for a while and then said, “Let it just read ‘Fred Anson died.’ Amused at the woman’s ‘thrift’, the man at the office told her, “I’m sorry ma’am. There is a 7-word minimum for all obituaries put in our newspaper.” The woman was getting annoyed. She pondered for a few seconds and then said, “In that case write , ‘Fred Anson died. Good 1982 pick-up for sale.’ ” Reflection A miser’s behaviour and actions can be most unbecoming … small wonder why he or she cannot relate well to others. Unless and until one lessens or removes one's greed and stinginess, one can never find true happiness and peace. Wisdom From A Laugh 93
  2. 2. An Anniversary Wish A married couple, both 60 years old, were celebrating their 35th wedding Anniversary. During their party, a wizard appeared to congratulate them and grant them each one wish. The wife wanted to travel around the world and poof – the wife had tickets in her hand for a world cruise. Next, the wizard asked the husband what he wanted. He said, “I wish I had a wife 30 years younger than me.” The wizard picked up his wand and poof – the husband was 90 years old. Reflection Unwholesome wishes sometimes come true in a most unexpected manner to the disappointment or detriment of the wisher. Beware of the mental defilements of desire and craving, aversion and delusion. They will cause you real suffering. Wisdom From A Laugh 94
