COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS
On the platform at the railway station
In the centre of the town
A lady was sitting on the seat
while waiting for her train.
A rather scruffy looking man came by
And sat down on the seat.
As soon as he was settled down
He lit a cigarette.
The lady looked at him and said
"How many packets of those
Would you smoke in a day?"
The man was a bit surprised
And didnt know what to say
But as he didnt have anything else to do
He answered her saying " oh, one or two"
She immediately said"
And how much does a packet cost?"
And he answered straight away
"About twenty pounds - at most"
But the lady continued to question him
"How long have you been smoking?"
He turned and said with a smile'
"It must be going on for forty years.
I know its been a while"
He could hardly believe what she said next.
He thought she must be dreaming.
"If you hadn’t wasted all that money
You would now have a Lamborghini"
The man was silent for a while
Then when next he spoke
He posed a question to the lady
"Have you never had a smoke?"
Her answer to his remark
Was delivered in a shot
Indignantly she snarled at him.
"No. Certainly not!!!"
There was silence for a while
As the man checked out the scenery.
Then he asked the Lady
"Where do you park your Lamborghini?"
Thank you, Pass on my best wishes to the group. I just wish I could be there with you,
