In the Stanwood Community and Senior Center fitness class, we talk about anything and everything. With more than fifteen members, we share a rich pool of experience and knowledge, and sometimes our laugh muscles get the best workout of all. One part of the session we look forward to is “one-liner” time. Betty “Be Happy” Sunde started the custom of bringing a pithy, amusing saying to class each day. She’s entertaining her friends in heaven now, but Ray Lee picked up her mantle. Here’s a few that made us laugh recently. Hope they brighten your day, too!
Headline: Police were called to a day care where a three-year-old was resisting a rest.
Advice: Always borrow money from a pessimist. He won’t expect it back.
Question: Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but checks when you say the paint is wet?
Verse: Trains don’t wander
all over the map
‘cause nobody sits
in the engineer’s lap. Burma Shave!
A closed mouth gathers no feet.
Nostalgia isn’t what it used to be.
And one last chuckle: If at first you do succeed, try not to look astonished.
