When I stepped on the scale at my doctor’s office, I was surprised to see that I weighed 144 pounds.
“Why don’t you just take off that last four?” I joked to the nurse’s aide as she made a notation on my chart.

On our way to the ski hill, my friend’s children decided to “find me a man” by the end of the day.
The kids did their best to let it be known I was unmarried and to introduce me to anyone who was skiing alone and therefore, in their minds, single.
To my great relief they finally got bored with their mission and charged off on their own. I then made my way to the chair lift. As I moved near the front of the line, a gentleman close to my age said “Excuse me, but are you single?”

An angel appears at a College faculty meeting and tells the Dean that in return for his unselfish and exemplary behaviour, the Lord will reward him with his choice of infinite wealth, infinite wisdom, or infinite beauty. Without hesitating, the Dean selects infinite wisdom.

The Dean sighs and says, “I should have taken the money.”
