Wendz's Mini-Picture Meme

Wendz did a picture meme and tagged me with it. I decided to do one about a joke that my sister emailed me because I thought it was cute. I hope you get a smile out of it, too. :-D

Miss Beatrice, the church organist, was in her eighties and had never been married. She was admired for her sweetness and kindness to all.

One afternoon the minister came to call on her and she showed him into her quaint sitting room.

She invited him to have a seat while she prepared tea. As he sat facing her old organ, the young minister noticed a cut-glass bowl sitting on top of it. The cut-glass bowl was filled with water, and in the water floated, of all things, a condom!

When she returned with tea and scones, they began to chat. The minister tried to stifle his curiosity about the cut-glass bowl of water and its strange floater, but soon it got the better of him and he could no longer resist.

"Miss Beatrice", he said, "I wonder if you would tell me about this?" pointing to the cut-glass bowl.

"Oh, yes," she replied, "Isn't it wonderful? I was walking through the park a few months ago and I found this little package on the ground. The directions said to place it on the organ, keep it wet and that it would prevent the spread of disease.

Do you know, I haven't had the flu all winter."

thank goodness you didn't tag anybody (mainly me) with this meme. I'd go crazy trying to do something like this.

Best left to the creative types like you and Wendz....

Lizza said...

Maggie: Thanks! It didn't take that long, about an hour.

H: Ahh, innocence. :-)

Kiyotoe: Good thing she tagged me with it, my mind is utterly blank right now. Well, not really. Too many thoughts actually, but nothing bloggable.
