Never Question a Drunk

A woman was shopping at the local supermarket where she selected:

A half-gallon of 2% milk
A carton of eggs
A quart of orange juice
A head of lettuce
A 2 lb. can of coffee
A 1 lb. package of bacon

As she was unloading the items on the conveyor belt to check out, a drunk standing behind me watched as she placed the items in front of the cashier. While the cashier was ringing up the purchases, the drunk calmly stated, 'You must be single.'

She was a bit startled by this proclamation, but was apparently intrigued by the drunk’s intuition. She looked at the six items on the belt and saw nothing particularly unusual about her selections that could have tipped off the drunk to her marital status.

Curiosity getting the better of her, she said, 'Yes you are correct. But how on earth did you know that?'

The drunk replied, 'Cause you're ugly.'

  5. Oh, that is sad. But a great reason not to answer a drunk. And another reason why I like all my animals much better than people.
    Have a great day.

  13. That's a great one, Sandee! People who aren't even drunk tell me that. :)

    I haven't been blogging for a bit and am slowing down now. So I missed the ending of your fine "Opening Day on the Bay" posts. It looked like a fun event. Congratulations on your award.
    Your together picture is perfect!
