Marty's Joke of the Day

Marty's Joke of the day is an internet column that I've written for more than 5 years.
I tell humorous stories about my "sweet wife" and raising our 4 young sons, named #1, #2, #3, and #4.
After 5 years of story telling, in August of 2005, doctors found a brain tumor in son #4.
Our focus here has changed little as we still try to find humor in our lives.

12/01 - Last Day to Spoil

Thursday, December 01, 2005

32/33 = 97%!!

Tomorrow is the big day. It’s son #4’s last radiation treatment!
We’re planning some celebratory events, but haven’t got past
dinner yet. He said he wanted to go to the place where we watch
them make pizza, so it’s Pie Pizzeria for dinner. My sweet wife
also bought some mini bags of cheetos for the nurses as gifts to
give out tomorrow. She put on little notes on them to say thanks.

My sweet wife also promised son #4 a cake for his last treatment
day. So they went to the grocery story and picked out a plain
single layer cake. She asked him what he wanted to put on it, and
he said, “Congrats Son #4” So the baker wrote it in green
frosting. (His favorite color) The she said, “How do you like it?”
He said, “It needs more color” So she got out the red, blue, and
orange frostings and started to plop more frosting on. Then he
said he wanted to help, so he went behind the counter and showed
her were to put frosting. He got board with that and then got the
frosting from her and started putting it on the cake by himself.

Hmmm... Weren’t we just talking about a little spoilage yesterday?

Ok, the day after tomorrow I’ll start beating him back into shape.
(Just kidding. Don’t call the ASPCA on me!)

For those of you who get this as email...
Enjoy today’s Jokes!


Son #4 got another baseball hat in the post office box today!
Yippee, his favorite color, green! Thanks to Brian C. for that
one. He says, “This hat came from the Grand Illumination Parade
held in downtown Norfolk, VA” It looks like a Cool parade Brian,

He also got a hat and a t-shirt from my ‘Harry Potter’ friend at
work. It’s an XBOX 360 hat and shirt they got when they WON(!) an
XBOX from every10minutes.com. Some people have all the luck ‘eh?
