Someone told me the following joke years ago and it still makes me giggle. I don’t generally remember jokes, even five minutes later, or I mess up the telling of the joke and give away the punch line.
Since I edit my own blog, this time I’ll get it right. And since you are reading this joke, I’ll never know if you are rolling your eyes, or suppressing a soft groan.
In my mind, you’ve just let out a deep belly laugh, and now have tears running down your cheeks while you call to someone in the other room to come hear this hilarious joke.
Perhaps I should have stopped before that last paragraph. Now you really have your hopes up. I’m nothing if not optimistic.
A man hears a knock at his door, but upon answering doesn’t find anyone there.
He closes the door, but again hears a knock.
The second time he opens the door, looks down and sees a garden snail on his front porch.
He bends down, hurls the snail across the yard and again closes the door.
Flash forward: Ten Years Later
The same man hears a knock at his door and upon answering it, he sees the same snail on his front porch.
The snail looks up at him and says, “What the hell was that about?”
I hope you’re sliding into a happy Friday.
