The following post really resonates with me because I am terribly forgetful nowadays! Thanks to Freddie who sent me this joke and who drove all the way to my home to give me a present = a thimble that he bought for me and also the two I asked him to buy. For over 20 years, I have been collecting:
  • thimbles
  • teapots and chinese tea cups
  • white and blue pottery
  • nyonya pottery
  • shot and whisky glasses
  • spoons
  • teddy bears
  • Superheroes figurines (believe me - I have an extensive collection, Transformers toys and Mighty Max toys (supposedly for my sons but in reality for myself haha)
  • paper bags, handbags etc
  • jigsaw puzzles and all kinds of 3-D puzzles
  • books, cds
  • candle-stands, candles, fridge magnets
  • and lots of other stuff
Freddie could not believe what I had amassed through the years! Anyway, here's a joke that might strike a chord in your heart if you are as forgetful as I am haha..Have a lovely evening!

The Proposal

He was a widower and she a widow. They had known each other for a number of years being high school classmates and having attended class reunions in the last 20 years without fail.

This 50th anniversary of their class, the widower and the widow made a foursome with two other singles.

They had a wonderful evening, their spirits high. The widower throwing admiring glances across the table. The widow smiling coyly back at him.

Finally, he picked up courage to ask her, "Will you marry me?"



After about six seconds of careful consideration, she answered, "Yes ... yes I will!"

The evening ended on a happy note for the widower. But the next morning he was troubled.

Did she say “Yes” or did she say “No?” He couldn't remember. Try as he would, he just could not recall. He went over the conversation of the previous evening, but his mind was blank.

He remembered asking the question but for the life of him could not recall her response. With fear and trepidation he picked up the phone and called her.

First, he explained that he couldn't remember as well as he used to. Then he reviewed the past evening. As he gained a little more courage he then inquired of her. "When I asked if you would marry me, did you say “Yes” or did you say “No?”

"Why you silly man I said, ‘Yes. Yes I will.’ And I meant it with all my heart."

The widower was delighted. He felt his heart skip a beat.

Then she continued. "And I am so glad you called because I couldn't remember who asked me!”
