While this one is intended to be a joke, quite frankly, it's NOT funny. Why not? Well, downstairs from my former office, we had a lady just like this hanging around day in, day out. She was a constant reminder to me, getting to the office, getting out the office, ... what I would end up as, if I continued my addiction to alcohol. May be not very rational thinking ... The lady may have had other issues, but all the same, ...

Here's the story (While not really wanting to spoilt your day, it's a gentle reminder that while some jokes appear funny to some, it does ring an alarm bell with others ...). And this goes for men and women, so ladies no gender chauvinism here ...

A woman was walking down the street when she was accosted by a particularly
dirty and shabby-looking homeless woman who asked her for a couple of
dollars for dinner.

The woman took out her bill fold, extracted ten dollars and asked, "If I
give you this money, will you buy some wine with it instead of dinner?"

"No," I had to stop drinking years ago, the homeless woman replied.

"Will you use it to go shopping instead of buying food?" the woman asked.

"No, I don't waste time shopping, the homeless woman said. "I need to spend
all my time trying to stay alive.

"Will you spend this on a beauty salon instead of food?" the woman asked

"Are you NUTS!" replied the homeless woman. "I haven't had my hair done in
20 years!"

"Well," said the woman, "I'm not going to give you the money.
Instead,I'm going to take you out for dinner with my hubby and myself

The homeless woman was astounded. "Won't your husband be furious with you
for doing that? I know I'm dirty, and I probably smell pretty disgusting.

"The woman replied, "That's okay. It's important for him to see what a woman
looks like after she has given up shopping, hair appointments and wine."

Keep healthy, y'all,
