Smile of the Day

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

Monday, January 29

The exact time is ...

Every morning for years, at about 11:30, the telephone operator in a small town received a call from a man asking the exact time. One day the operator asked him why the regularity. "I am foreman of the local sawmill," he explained. "Every day I have to blow the whistle at noon, so I call you to get the exact time."

The operator giggled. "All this time," she explained, "we have been setting our clock by your whistle."
