Thoughts for the week:
A man and his wife walked into a dentist’s office. The man said to the dentist, “Doc, I’m in one heck of a hurry. I have two buddies sitting out in my car waiting for us to go play golf so forget about the anesthetic. I don’t have time for the gums to get numb. I just want you to pull the tooth and be done with it. We have a 10 a.m. tee time at the best golf course in town and it’s 9:30 already. I don’t have time to wait for the anesthetic to work!”
The dentist thought to himself, “My goodness, this is surely a very brave man asking to have his tooth pulled without using anything to kill the pain.” So, the dentist asked him, “Which tooth is it sir?”
The man turned to his wife and said, “Open your mouth, honey, and show him the one that hurts.”
A huge college freshman decided to try out for the football team. “Can you tackle?” asked the coach.
“Watch this,” said the freshman, who proceeded to run smack into a telephone pole and knock it completely over.
“Wow,” said the coach. “I’m impressed. Can you run?”
“Of course, I can run,” said the freshman. He was off like a shot and in just more than nine seconds, ran a hundred-yard dash.
“Great!” said the coach. “But can you pass a football?”
The freshman hesitated for a few seconds. “Well, sir,” he said, “if I can swallow it, I can probably pass it.”
That’s all, folks. Enjoy the rest of your week.
