After leaving the racetrack Bill bumped into his old friend Peter on the bus.
“Say,” Peter said, “How’s it going?” “Going? You want to hear one of the most amazing things that ever happened? Tell me- what’s today’s date?”
“July seventh.” “Right. The seventh day, of the seventh month. I go to the track at seven minutes past seven. My son is seven years old today, and we live at number seven, Seventh Avenue.” “Let me guess,” Peter interrupted. “You put everything you had on the seventh horse in the seventh race.” “Right.”
“And he won!” Peter sighed.
“No. He came in seventh.”

I have been in many places, but I've never been in Cahoots. Apparently, you can't go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone.
I've also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.
I have, however, been in Sane. They don't have an airport; you have to be driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my friends, family and work.
I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I'm not too much on physical activity anymore.
I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go(*), and I try not to visit there too often.
I've been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.
Sometimes I'm in Capable, and I go there more often as I'm getting older.
One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the stimuli I can get!
And, sometimes I think I am in Vincible but life shows me I am not!
*) i begs to differ.
Doubt may be an uncomfortable condition. But surety is ridiculous.

"My canary is dead and i'm burying him" Jack replies.
"But isn't this rather large a hole for such a small bird?"
"Yes, it is, indeed." Jack replies and looks straight at Joe. "But he's stuck inside your goddamned cat."
"What did your mother do yesterday morning. Vicky?"
"She done her shopping, ma’am."

Lying on his deathbed, the wealthy Mr. Sams was instructing his attorney on last-minute changes in his will: "I wish to leave everything I own, all stocks, bonds property, art, and money, to my wife. However, there is one stipulation."
"And that is?”"
"In order to inherit, she must marry within six months of my death."
The lawyer seemed puzzled. "Why make such an unusual request?"
Mr. Sams answered, "Because I want someone to be sorry I died."
Policeman: "Did you get the license number of the car that knocked you down?"

Facing the worst --
until laughter burst.

Sign on company bulleting board: "This firm requires no physical-fitness program. Everyone gets enough exercise jumping to conclusions, flying off the handle, running down the boss, flogging dead horses, knifing friends in the back, dodging responsibility, and pushing their luck."
A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.
A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.
A successful woman is one who can find such a man.
