Working in the outreach department of our regional library means that Jenny must visit a number of retirement homes. The stories she tells about the residents are hysterical: the woman who has three books and doesn't NEED anything from the library, the old man who hit her with his cane (she was not harmed), the man who likes Disney Channel DVDs, and others. Her telling of these encounters is so comical and I laugh like the immoderate fool I am.
Jenny had just given me a sip of coffee when she told me she was visiting Disney Channel man today, to bring him new episodes of The Suite Life of Zack & Cody. I found this so absurdly funny that I choked on my coffee, losing the entire mouthful.
Poor Jenny felt so bad, and uttered a new nugget of wisdom: "the journey from joke to choke is very short."
