The young man at the flower shop was taking an unusually long time to place his order. When the clerk asked how she could help, he explained that his girlfriend was turning nineteen and he couldn’t decide whether to give her a dozen roses or nineteen roses — one for each year of her life.

The young man bought a dozen roses.
A member of a diet club bemoaned her lack of will-power. She had made her family’s favorite cake over the weekend, she explained, and they had eaten half of it.

“He never found out,” she said. “I made another cake and ate half.”
