Herman and Erma
Herman and Erma Dullard have been married for fifty years. Like many couples who have been married for a long time, and getting on in age; they get a little cranky with each other from time to time.
Herman: I notice you don’t seem to get upset with me so much anymore.
Erma:I’ve learned a way to deal with my anger.
Herman: Well, whatever you’re doing, keep it up. What is it you’re doing anyway?
Erma:I go clean the toilet…makes me feel much better.
Herman: Really? How does cleaning the toilet get rid of your anger?
Erma:I clean it with your toothbrush….hehehe.
Erma: Herman, after fifty years, if you could marry me all over again, would you?
Herman: I sure would dear. To me, you’re still that same pretty girl you were when I first saw you standing there in that blue dress, I said to myself, that’s the girl I’m gonna marry one day! You were the prettiest girl at the Harvest Dance.
Erma: That’s so sweet Herman; makes me feel…..wait a minute; I wasn’t wearing a blue dress. I was wearing a yellow dress; Mary Sue Albright was wearing the blue dress!
Herman: Oh hell! You mean to tell me I married the wrong girl? Wait a minute, where’re you going Erma…I just got confused about the dress, that’s all.
Erma: I’m going to clean the toilet!
