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.

4/17 - Weather Test

Tuesday, April 17, 2007

Another test in Biology lab today. I think I did pretty good, but
again, we’ll just have to wait and see. Not much happening today
in the funny boy raising department.

How about the weather? It was almost 70º today, tomorrow it’s
supposed to snow. That’s Utah weather for ya.

Enjoy today’s offerings.

Enjoy Today’s Jokes!

[About Imus]
Marty, I'm a little behind on my emails, but I just wanted to let
you know I agree with you 100% about Imus! Like you, I think what
he said was stupid, but no worse then what others on the radio and
tv have said who are allowed to make such comments with impunity.
It was definitely a double standard and it wasn't fair.

[About the Tooth Fairy]
Hate to admit I can top that, but I can top that. For me, it
seems my middle son (of my 3 sons) seems to get it the worst.
The first night we forgot. We reminded him that two other kids at
church had teeth out - they each had had several pulled. Maybe the
tooth fairy got too busy and couldn't make it across town? The
second night, we forgot. Well maybe she couldn't find it, was it
too far under the pillow, lost in the sheets? After the third
night of forgetting, my son came in my room in tears. I went to
his room with him, my wheels were turning - how could I be such a
bad mom? I told him hang on, I've got to talk to dad. Back
in my bedroom I quickly got out my fairy supplies (yes, I have
supplies) I rubbed a little glue on the $2 bill, sprinkled it
lightly with glitter - fairy dust. Then for the big lie. Son, I
think I know what happened. Last night your dad heard something,
he went to see what it was - I THINK HE SCARED AWAY THE TOOTH
FAIRY. Come here quick (over to the front door). Look, what's
that? Of course, I had already dropped the prepared $2 bill on
the floor....

As a realtor, I deal with all types of people. Recently, I showed
a home to a couple who seemed eager to check out the fantastic
view from the living room. But when I dramatically pulled back the
drapes, the disappointed husband asked, "Where is the view? Those
mountains must be blocking it."
