First Visit To The Dentist
A shy 4-year-old went to the dentist for his first cleaning and check-up. The hygienist tried to strike up a conversation but no response.
After the cleaning, the dentist was called in to do the final check. The dentist tried to strike up a conversation as well.
“How old are you?” No response. The dentist then asked, “Don’t you know how old you are?”
Immediately four tiny fingers went up. “Oh,” replied the dentist, “and do you know how old that is?”
Four little fingers went up once again. Continuing the effort to get a response, the dentist asked, “Can you talk?”
The solemn little patient looked at him and asked, “Can you count?”
Things you learn as you get older Some Comparisons
As you get older you realize that a $300 watch and a $30 watch tell the same time;
That a Michael Kors wallet and a Forever 21 wallet hold the same amount of money;
That a $300,000 house and a $100,000 house both host the same amount of loneliness;
That a Bentley and a Ford will drive you the same distance;
That true happiness is not found in materialistic things—it comes from the love and laughter shared with each other.
Jokes and Sad Stories
Bill, Jim, and Scott were at a convention together and were sharing a large suite on the top of a 75-story skyscraper. After a long day of meetings they were shocked to hear that the elevators in their hotel were broken and they would have to climb 75 flights of stairs to get to their room.
Bill said to Jim and Scott, “Let’s break the monotony of this unpleasant task by concentrating on something interesting. I’ll tell jokes for 25 flights, and Jim can sing songs for 25 flights, and Scott can tell sad stories the rest of the way.”
At the 26th floor Bill stopped telling jokes and Jim began to sing.
At the 51st floor Jim stopped singing and Scott began to tell sad stories. “I will tell my saddest story first,” he said. “I left the room key in the car.”
