A Burst of Laughter

by Sherry Riter in Humor

These only have the intention of giving you a good belly laugh.

The first two pictures are in a definite order…

This life really boils down to 2 questions….

1. Should I get a dog?


2. Should I have children?

This is not my dog and not my children! Thankfully!

No matter what situations life throws at you….
No matter how long and treacherous your journey may seem..

Remember ~~ there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Not The Job of My Dreams

At a grocery store

A man observed a woman in the grocery store with a three year old girl in her basket. As they passed the cookie section, the little girl asked for cookies and her mother told her, “No.” The little girl immediately began to whine and fuss, and the mother said quietly, “Now Monica, we just have half of the aisles left to go through – don’t be upset. It won’t be long now.”

Soon, they came to the candy aisle and the little girl began to shout for candy. When told she couldn’t have any, she began to cry. The mother said, “There, there, Monica, don’t cry – only two more aisles to go and then we’ll be checking out.”

When they got to the checkout stand, the little girl immediately began to clamor for gum and burst into a terrible tantrum upon discovering there’d be no gum purchased. The mother said serenely, “Monica, we’ll be through this check out stand in 5 minutes and then you can go home and have a nice nap.”

The man followed them out to the parking lot and stopped the woman to compliment her. “I couldn’t help noticing how patient you were with little Monica,” he began.

The mother replied, “I’m Monica – my little girl’s name is Tammy.”

Hang In There!
