BONUS NOVEMBER DECORATING IDEA:
From www.ajokeaday.com - 11/04/16:
|A man was trying to cross the
street. As he stepped off the curb, a car came screaming around the
corner and headed straight for him. The man walked faster, trying to
hurry across the street, but the car changed lanes and was still coming
So the guy turned around to go back, but the car changed lanes again and was still coming at him. By now, the car was so close and the man so scared, that he just froze and stopped in the middle of the road. The car got real close, then swerved at the last possible moment and screeched to a halt right next to him.
The driver rolled down the window. The driver was a squirrel!
The squirrel said to the man, "See, it's not as easy as it looks, is it?"
