LOL FRIDAY: Thanksgiving Divorce


Thanksgiving divorce

Thanksgiving Divorce

A man in Phoenix calls his son in New York the day before Thanksgiving and says,"I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough.

"Pop, what are you talking about?" the son screams. We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the father says. "We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her."

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. "Like heck they're getting divorced," she shouts, "I'll take care of this,"

She calls Phoenix immediately, and screams at her father, "You are NOT getting divorced. Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?" and hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. "Okay," he says, "they're coming for Thanksgiving and paying their own way."

Funny but, not to rain on the parade but actually it was a Thanksgiving weekend in I think it was 1989 that my father called me to tell me the same thing and he was serious.

Mirela, what a clever, funny blog!  On the serious side, though, we all have a tendency to take our loved ones for granted assuming that there will always be tomorrow next month or next year.

Mirela, while driving to Chicago this last Turkey Day, I heard another twist on this over the radio...the punch line ended with the husband hanging up with his son and saying to his wife tha he's got the kids coming for Thanksgiving now she (wife) as to think up something to get them down for Christmas.  Funny stuff both ways!
