Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

Friday, April 7


Morris had invited his old high school buddy Bernie, whom he hadn't seen in years, to dinner. Bernie was startled, and a little charmed, to hear this aging husband still precede every request to his wife with "Honey", "Love", "Darling", "Sweetheart", "Pumpkin", the list just kept growing. "You know," he said at last, "that is truly sweet, the way, after all these years, you keep calling your wife by these pet names."

Morris hung his head. "To tell the truth," he whispered, "I forgot her name three years ago."
