Little Johnny’s preschool class went on a field trip to the fire station. The firefighter giving the presentation held up a smoke detector and asked the class: “Does anyone know what this is?”
Little Johnny’s hand shot up and the firefighter called on him.
Little Johnny replied: “That’s how Mommy knows supper is ready!”
While attending a marriage seminar dealing with communication, Tom and his wife Grace listened to the instructor: “It is essential that husbands and wives know the things that are important to each other.”
He addressed the man: “Can you describe your wife’s favourite flower?”
Tom leaned over, touched his wife’s arm gently and whispered: “It’s self-raising, isn’t it?”
One day, Sarah was watching her mother make a roast sirloin of beef. She cut off the ends, wrapped it in string, seasoned it and set it in the roasting dish. Sarah politely asked her mum why she cut off the ends of the roast.
The mum replied, after some thought, that it was the way that her mother had done it. That night grandma came to dinner and Sarah and her mother asked why she cut the end off of the roast before cooking. After some thought grandma replied that she cooked the meat the way her own mother had done it.
Now, great-grandma was quite old and lived in a residential nursing home, so Sarah, her mum and grandma went to visit her and again asked the very same question. Great-grandma looked at them a bit surprised and said: “So it would fit in the roasting dish, of course.”
