It’s always nice when someone makes that little extra effort for your birthday!
TIED UP GUY #1: Surprise!
MAN ENTERING ROOM: For me? Gosh! And I thought you forgot my birthday!
TIED UP GUY #2 (thinks): Oh, boy! I hope he unwraps me first!
Afloat in romance…
Like the guy in this week’s comic, I sometimes have trouble reaching my destination. (I once ended up in Scotland by accident. No, I’m not kidding.)
With this in mind–to make sure that we actually went somewhere (without mishap) and celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary in style–Shelagh bought us the most fool-proof vacation you can get: a cruise.
So last week we flew down to San Diego (without ending up in Scotland) and took a four-day cruise that included stops at Catalina Island (truly gorgeous) and Ensenada, Mexico (not as impressive unless you’re into shopping for silver jewelry or quasi-legal drugs–which I’m not.) Amazingly, no international incidents occurred–that can be traced to me–and we generally had a terrific time!
WOMAN (IN BOAT): Darling, I think Europe is the other way!
On the other hand, if you always lie then at least you’re dependable liar (or politician.) It’s when you only lie some of the time that people don’t trust you.

MAN: Gosh! You're right! Can you ever forgive me?
