Smile of the Day

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

Monday, October 20


An elderly man lay dying in his bed when he suddenly smelled the aroma of his favourite chocolate chip cookies wafting up the stairs.

He gathered his remaining strength and lifted himself from the bed. Leaning against the wall, he slowly made his way out of the bedroom, and with even greater effort, gripping the railing with both hands, he started crawling downstairs. With laboured breath, he leaned against the door frame, gazing into the kitchen: and there, spread out upon sheet after baking sheet, were hundreds of chocolate chip cookies.

Mustering one great final effort, he dragged himself towards the table -- and was suddenly smacked with a wooden spoon by his wife.

"Back off!" she said. "They are for the funeral."
