    Giving Up Wine


    I was walking down the street
    when I was accosted
    by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking
    homeless woman who asked me
    for a couple of dollars for dinner.
    I took out my wallet,
    got out ten dollars and asked,
    'If I give you this money,
    will you buy wine with it instead of dinner?'

    'No, I had to stop drinking years ago',
    the homeless woman told me.

    'Will you use it to go shopping
    instead of buying food?' I asked.

    'No, I don't waste time shopping,'
    the homeless woman said.
    'I need to spend all my time trying to stay alive.'

    'Will you spend this on a beauty salon
    instead of food?' I asked.

    'Are you NUTS!' replied the homeless woman.
    I haven't had my hair done in 20 years!'

    'Well, I said, 'I'm not going to give you
    the money. Instead, I 'm going
    to take you out for dinner with
    my husband and me tonight.'

    The homeless woman was shocked.
    'Won't your husband be furious with you
    for doing that? I know I'm dirty, and
    I probably smell pretty disgusting.'

    I said, 'That's okay. It's important for him
    to see what a woman looks like
    after she has given up wine, shopping,
    and hair appointments.'

          But her answer was much better :)

                  Ha ha. I saw the title of this thread and thought there is no way Erin is giving up wine.

                      I know! I was thinking I should have put "jokle of the day" or something in the title after I posted.

                      I never attend another family function if I didn't have wine! It's like my security blanket!
