Welcome to the 99th Humormeister's Forum edition

We take smiles for granted. A few times now I watched 'Operation Smile' on TV, where Canadian and American cosmetic surgeons fix poor children's cleft lips and cleft plates free of charge.

What a joy to see these children smile after the operation. Watching those smiles made me smile, as well as bring tears to my eyes.

The power and joy of a smile is really exemplified in these 'Operation Smile' TV segments.

The 1 Minute laugh

A man calls home to his wife and says, "Honey, I have been asked to fly to Canada with my boss and several of his friends for fishing. This is a good opportunity for me to get that promotion I've wanted, so could you please pack enough clothes for a 3 day weekend?"

"And also would you get my rod and tackle box from the attic. We're leaving at 4:30 from the office and I will swing by the house to pick things up. And could you pack my new navy blue silk pajamas."

The wife thinks this sounds a bit odd, but being the good wife, she does exactly what her husband asked.

Coming home after the long weekend, he looks a little tired, bot otherwise okay. The wife welcomes him home and asks how many fish he caught.

He says, "Lots of Walleyes, some Bass, and a few pike.He says, "why didn't you pack my new blue silk pajamas like I asked you?"

The wife replies,"I did, they're in the tackle box!"

Never, never, never, try to outsmart a woman!

Kids are funny!

A kindergarten teacher told her students that it was good idea to sleep with window cracked open just a little bit to let fresh air in.

She asked who already slept with their bedroom window slightly open. She noticed that Kathy didn't raise her hand.

She asked why Kathy didn't raise her hand. Kathy replied, " I sleep with my aunt, who doesn't like the window open at night."

Six months passed. One day Kathy was all excited and her hand up for permission to talk. I said,"What would you like to tell me Kathy?"

Kathy, all excited said, "You remember teacher that you told us it was healthy to sleep with the bedroom window open a little at night. Well, last night I had my window open!"

I said, "I thought your aunt did not want the window open at night!"

Kathy excitedly replied,"Well, last week, my mom went to visit grandma and grandpa in Houston and my aunt slept with my dad!"

I didn't know what to reply!

A sense of humor is key to a great marriage

Life is too serious to take it seriously!

Couples' daily routines are seldom without problems. Certain times in our lives can even be touched with tragedy.

Everyone of us needs lighten up from time to time. There is humor in every day situations. It depends on how you view things.

If you can laugh at things, it's like a mini vacation. The goofiest expressions, mispronounciations, funny observances about TV commercials, TV personalities etc., can spark a laugh.

If you can lighten up, laugh and enjoy the sometimes bumpy journey together with a sense of humor, you are 50% closer to achieving to a joyful and successful marriage.

If you choose this path, you'll eliminate much of the monotony and boredom that would otherwise characterize you marital life.

'A laugh a day keeps the monotomy and boredom away!'
