Wednesday Chuckle

I always end my Wednesday group with a joke. This started about fivel years ago when I had several very emotional clients in my group who turned each session turned into a tear-fest. I hated having everyone leave on this note of sadness, so I incorporated the joke of the day to dissipate the sadness and add some joy.  It has worked very well.  In fact, whenever a co-worker covers my group when I am absent, they are informed that group isn't over until the joke is told. 

So, I decided that I'd like to add a little fun to this blog in the middle of the week in the way of a 'Wednesday Chuckle'. No writing.  Just sharing a funny.  In newspapers they would call it a column; I don't know what it is called here, but it is going to be a weekly, shall I say 'respite', in the middle of the week. 

So, moving onto the first installment....Hope you enjoy.

An elderly man is stopped by the police around 2 a.m. and is asked where he is going at this time of night.

The man replies, "I am on my way to a lecture about alcohol abuse and the effects it has on the human body, as well as smoking and staying out late."

The officer then asks, "Really? Who is giving that lecture at this time of night?"

The man replies, "That would be my wife."
