Sometimes Surprise Makes You Laugh


“Sometimes Surprise Makes You Laugh” by Joan Y. Edwards

Sometimes Surprise Makes You Laugh

Copyright 2018 Joan Y. Edwards

A Canadian couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during a particularly icy winter. They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon twenty years earlier.

Because of hectic schedules, the husband left on Thursday, and his wife was going to join him on Friday. When the husband checked into the hotel on Thursday, he sent an email to his wife. However, he left out a letter in her email address.

So when a widow came home after her husband’s funeral in Houston and checked her latest email, she screamed and fainted. Her son rushed into the room. He found his mother on the floor, and saw this note on her computer screen:

To: My Loving Wife
Subject: I’ve Arrived

I’ve just arrived and checked in. Everything is ready for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then!

P.S. Sure is hot down here!

I hope this story surprised you and made you laugh!

My friend, Jim Connell, used to tell me jokes when his wife, Betty and I met at a local restaurant to eat. Before Mother died, she joined us. Each time we met, I asked Jim to tell me this joke. I wrote this post in his memory. I know Jim is telling God and his angels stories to make them laugh up there in heaven. Thanks, Jim Connell for sharing the gift of laughter with my Mother and me.
