The Good Wife
There was a man, who had worked all his life,
had saved all of his money, And was a real miser
when it came to his money. Just before he died,
he said to his wife...'When I die, I want you to take
all my money and put it in the casket with me.
I want to take my money to the afterlife with me.'
And so he got his wife to promise him,
with all of her heart, that when he died,
she would put all of the money into the casket
with him. Well, he died...
as he was stretched out in the casket,
his wife was sitting there - dressed in black,
and her friend was sitting next to her.
When they finished the ceremony,
and just before the undertakers got ready
to close the casket, the wife said,
'Wait just a moment!'
She had a small metal box with her;
she came over with the box and put
it in the casket. Then the undertakers
locked the casket down and they rolled it away.
So her friend said,
'Girl, I know you were not foolish
enough to put all that money in there
with your husband.'
The loyal wife replied,
'Listen, I'm a Christian;
I cannot go back on my word.
I promised him that I was going to put that money
into the casket with him.' You mean to tell me you
put that money in the casket with him!?!?!?'
'I sure did,' said the wife. 'I got it all together,
put it into my account, and wrote him a cheque..
"If he can cash it where he is, then he can spend it.'
She really thought this over
Sure hope you got your daily chuckle today.
As my Mom would say," Smile your face won't crack."
