"Rum Dandy" joke
What's that drink you're mixing?" the stranger asked the bartender in the exotic Caribbean bar.
"I call this a rum dandy," said the bartender.
"What's in it?" asked the stranger.
"Sugar, milk and rum," said the barkeep.
"Is it good?" asked the stranger.
"Sure," said the bartender. "The sugar gives you pep, the milk gives you energy."
"And the rum?" asked the stranger.
"Ideas about what to do with all that pep and energy


• If you eat something and no one sees you eat it, it has no calories.
• If you drink a diet soda with a candy bar, the calories in the candy bar are cancelled out by the diet soda.
• When you eat with someone else, calories don't count if you don't eat more than they do.
• Food used for medicinal purposes NEVER count, such as hot chocolate, brandy, toast and Sara Lee Cheesecake.
• If you fatten up everyone else around you, then you look thinner.
• Movie related foods (Milk Duds, Buttered Popcorn, Junior Mints, Red Hots, Tootsie Rolls, etc.) do not have additional calories because they are part of the entertainment package and not part of one's personal fuel.
• Cookie pieces contain no fat — the process of breaking causes fat leakage.
• Things licked off knives and spoons have no calories if you are in the process of preparing something. Examples are peanut butter on a knife while making a sandwich and ice cream on a spoon while making a sundae.
• Foods that have the same color have the same number of calories. Examples are: spinach and pistachio ice cream; mushrooms and white chocolate.
NOTE: Chocolate is a universal color and may be substituted for any other food color.
• Foods that are frozen have no calories because calories are units of heat. Examples are ice cream, frozen pies, and popsicles.

    I've heard of Debbie Macomber but have never read any of her books. Maybe I'll have to check out some of her books after I'm done reading the ones I'm currently reading. I've never heard of Sherryl Woods though and will have to check into some of her books. I think it's perfectly fine that you prefer to read books that aren't so serious. Life can be stressful enough without adding to it.

    As always, I loved the jokes! emoticon

    I love Debbie Macomber. I have one of her books with me on vacation this week. I read both books of hers you mention here. Both were excellent.

    I haven't heard of either author, but plan to check them out the next time I'm at the library. You might enjoy some of Karen Kingsbury's books since you enjoy romantic fiction.

    I think it’s great to read less serious books when life is more stressful. I do the same. I love Debbie Macomber and have to check out Sherryl Woods’ books.
