The Overprotective Mother The Single Woman



Shortly after a single woman arrived at her favorite bar in Florida, a handsome man came in and sat next to her. She said: “I haven’t seen you here before. Is this your first visit?” He replied: “Well, actually this is my first time back in 20 years.” She said: “Why did you wait so long?” He said: “To tell you the truth, I have been in prison.” She said: “Oh my. If you don’t mind me asking, why were you in prison?” He replied: “I’m not proud of it, but I killed my wife.” She asked: “Soo, your single?”

Why do you want to tell jokes?

When someone tells a funny joke with great delivery, it makes people laugh and feel happy. It also helps them to like the person telling the joke, remember that person, and causes them think that you, as the joke teller, are smart. This enhances your reputation as “the smartest person in the room.” Most people laugh at “A single woman walks into a bar.” There are a lot of single woman in Florida.

I recommend preparing a list of “Joke Reminders”. As the name implies, is list of words that remind you of a joke. Like most people, I quickly forget jokes. So, when someone tells a joke that I like, I write a few words on the back of the monthly calendar that I always carry with me. Later, I think about the joke and try to improve upon it and memorize it including appropriate facial expressions and arm gestures.

That reminds me of a joke. “What do you call it when an Italian has one arm shorter than the other?” ……….. “It is called a speech impediment.”
