I Have A Confession

In moving around, the shuffle and bustle of it all, we seem to have misplaced Faye's social security card.  Kind of a problem when you are trying to get the taxes done.  To remedy that problem, Jeffrey had to rush to the SSA building and get her number.

While there, a funny thing happened to him.

As you know, it is a very quiet room.  No one talks in it.  Coughing is even awkward.

As they were all sitting awkwardly in silence, an elderly couple entered and sat near a younger couple.  The older man had a very whisky rough voice.  With more rasp than Jeffrey has ever heard, the man turned to the young couple and said "I have a confession to make.  I am addicted to brake fluid...  but I can quit anytime I want."
His wife didn't say a thing.  She didn't even look at him.  After a bit of silence, he laughed and said "Just kidding."

I love when older people have such great senses of humor.  Awesome!

wow,
what a humor!
I feel odd when I read the old man's words, after reading the "just kidding", I giggled.
beautiful post!
Happy Monday, Amy.

None cat in the boat for my post,
we used to tease people "copycat",
thus, when one cat jumped off the boat, the rest followed. Thus no cats in the boat.

in general, such story does not follow math such as 4-1=3,
thank u for the efforts.

I sat down to do ours and I didn't know where Allison's was... But I had to keep going while I was at it or who knows when I would get the chance again... So I'm about to file (totaly forgeting that I didn't put her number in yet) A few error codes latter and oh yeah Allys number needs to be put in... But it was nice to see our return jump up when I did find her number and got it in... Oh and old people are the best I love listening to them and there funny storys and sense of hurmer...

Old people are weird! They come up with crazy stuff!:) So you never found the card. I hate losing things and then they slowly come up!

I can imagine being the wife...it made me chuckle. She's probably heard him say that more times than she can count...

;)

Oh that is funny! I, too, thought of the wife. I've only been married 10 years, and I feel like my husband's jokes are awfully old by now. She was probably rolling her eyes.

Erin said...

What a great story! I wonder what his wife thought, since she didn't say anything or look at him?
