Giving up Wine
Posted 21 July 2008 - 10:16 AM
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.'

And I thought it was going to be a good simertain (sp?) and take the woman out to have her hair done and stuff
But her answer was much better
150 INVITES / 6 YES / 13 NO

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