“Do I Have To Exercise EVERY Day?!”

Some sayings are worth repeating. My brother-in-law, who is a dentist once asked his patient to turn his head a little to the right. The patient turned his head to the left. Dr. says “no, your other right!”

Sometimes a person will be a little fumble fingered and drop a fork, which gets comments like “first day with your new hands? “Then the victim “I just washed my hands and I can’t do a thing with them.” That a reference to an old 50’s TV ad about shampoo “I just washed my hair, and I can’t do a thing with it. “Then there’s the time hey guy caught a calf with his rope and bragged about it and his pard responded, “yeah, that’s once in a row. ”

Or my Doctor Who when asked “do I have to exercise every day? “Responded “no, only on days when you eat. ”

My neighbor who raised Hereford cattle would often say during hay season “coastal Bermudagrass, is as good as they say it is, and as bad as they say it is.” One time at a dance he told a woman “On a scale of 1 to 10, you’re a 13! ” Then describing a careless youngster “he wouldn’t know if the sun came up in the west!” But my favorite of his was, “if it was raining soup, I’d be outside with a fork! ”

Another friend who was also a World War II veteran had only one leg. The other was lost when he was shot down in Europe in a fighter plane. He hunted birds in South Texas with his prosthetic leg unadorned by “snake chaps”. Once, a casual acquaintance, unfamiliar with his condition, pointed out that he’d forgotten to cover that leg, and he replied, “I like to give them snakes a 50/50 chance! “
