Quotes and Jokes

Two quotes and a joke to brighten your weekend.

The secret of becoming a writer is to write, write and keep on writing-- Ken MacLeod
The greatest rules of dramatic writing are conflict, conflict and conflict-- James Frey

Joke: Sunday School
Little Mary was not the best student in Sunday School. Usually she slept through the class. One day the teacher called on her while she was napping, ''Tell me, Mary, who created the universe?'' When Mary didn't stir, little Johnny, an altruistic boy seated in the chair behind her, took a pin and jabbed her in the rear. ''God Almighty !'' shouted Mary and the teacher said, ''Very good'' and Mary fell back to sleep. A while later the teacher asked Mary, ''Who is our Lord and Savior?'' But Mary didn't even stir from her slumber. Once again, Johnny came to the rescue and stuck her again. ''Jesus Christ!'' shouted Mary and the teacher said, ''Very good,'' and Mary fell back to sleep. Then the teacher asked Mary a third question, ''What did Eve say to Adam after she had her twenty-third child?'' And again, Johnny jabbed her with the pin. This time Mary jumped up and shouted, ''If you stick that damn thing in me one more time, I'll break it in half!'' The Teacher fainted.

Hi Mona,

A cute joke!

Belated congrats to you on your brand new blog--looks good.

And to Helen Scott Taylor on her American Title final. I voted for her ages ago. Like you, I had the privilege to read the story and I agree with you. Helen has a marvelous way with words. Magic Knot is fast paced and loaded with magical connections between Niall and Rose. Of course I couldn't forget Nightshade--my first encounter with a winged fairy vampire.

I look forward to reading your next post.

Hugs, Joan

Joan, I almost didn't recognize the name but I couldn't miss your smile.

I'm so glad you stopped by. I hope that soon we will see Magic Knot out in the bookstores and an autographed copy in our bookcases.
