A ROMANTIC NEW YEAR’S DAY STORY
A married couple had been out shopping for
most of the day. Suddenly the wife realized that her husband
had “disappeared”. Somewhat irate she called her
husband’s mobile and demanded, ‘Where are you?’
Husband: ‘Darling, do you remember that little
jewelry shop where you saw that beautiful diamond
necklace and totally fell in love with it but I didn’t have
the money at that time and I said “Darling it’ll be yours
one day.”’
Wife, tremulously, ‘Yes, I do remember that my
love.’
Husband, ‘Well I’m in the Pub next to that
shop.’

NEW YEAR’S DAY PARTY - THAT NEVER WAS?
As in many homes on New Year’s Day, Janet
and Nigel, a happily married couple, faced the annual
conflict of which was more important: the football match
on television, or the lunch itself.
Hoping to keep the peace Nigel ate lunch with
the rest of the family, and even lingered for some pleasant
after-lunch chat before retiring to the lounge to turn
on the television.
Some minutes later, Janet looked in to see how
he was and graciously even bought a cold beer for Nigel.
She smiled, kissed him on the cheek and asked what the
score was. Nigel told her it was half time and that the
score was still 0-0.
‘See?’ Janet said happily, ‘You didn’t miss a
thing.’
