Cup For A Loved One


  1. That reminds me of a joke:

    An old man was on his deathbed and his sons were gathered around him as he lay dying. The old man thought about the last few years of being sick and his sons not visiting him in the hospital, no flowers sent, of the birthdays gone by without so much of a card, holidays that passed without even a phone call from them and he got more and more angry as he thought about it, looking up at their faces, thinking that THEY were probably thinking just how much they stood to inherit upon his death.

    He motioned them closer and they drew nearer to the bed. "I have a confession to make to you. I loved your mother dearly and was heartbroken when she passed away several years ago, but...she and I never were married."

    The sons were shocked and one stammered "You mean to say....that we're all...." leaving off the term for children of two people who weren't wed.

    "Yep." snickered the old man. "And cheap ones, too."
