The Pony Joke

0

From a blog of Greg Hake (www.greghake.com), he retells one of Ronald Reagan’s favorite jokes.

“The joke concerns twin boys of five or six. Worried that the boys had developed extreme personalities — one was a total pessimist, the other a total optimist — their parents took them to a psychiatrist.

First the psychiatrist treated the pessimist.  Trying to brighten his outlook, the psychiatrist took him to a room piled to the ceiling with brand-new toys.  But instead of yelping with delight, the little boy burst into tears.  “What’s the matter?” the psychiatrist asked, baffled. “Don’t you want to play with any of the toys?”  “Yes,” the little boy bawled, “but if I did I’d only break them.”

Next the psychiatrist treated the optimist.  Trying to dampen his out look, the psychiatrist took him to a room piled to the ceiling with horse manure.  But instead of wrinkling his nose in disgust, the optimist emitted just the yelp of delight the psychiatrist had been hoping to hear from his brother, the pessimist.  Then he clambered to the top of the pile, dropped to his knees, and began gleefully digging out scoop after scoop with his bare hands.  “What do you think you’re doing?” the psychiatrist asked, just as baffled by the optimist as he had been by the pessimist. “With all this manure,” the little boy replied, beaming, “there must be a pony in here somewhere!”

Needless to say, a better way to live life is to always look for the pony.

Advice for the Holidays

0

Received this email from friend Mike:

First, I wish you all a Merry Christmas season and a wonderful New Year. May you and your family be well and have a wonderful festive season.

Now, please be careful during the many holiday parties, and I would like to share a personal experience with all of you about drinking and driving.

As you well know, some of us have been known to have had brushes with the police on our way home from an occasional social session over the years. A couple of nights ago, I was out for an evening with friends and had a couple of cocktails and a rather nice bottle of Pinot Noir. Knowing full well I may have been slightly over the limit, I did something I never done before~~I took a cab home. Sure enough, I passed a police sobriety check point, but since I was in a cab, they waved it past. I arrived home safe and sound without incident, which was a real surprise; as I have never driven a cab before and am not sure what to do with it now that it’s in my garage!

Cheers and Happy Holidays,

Mike
