The Senior Center
Okay, I needed a laugh, and this came from my mom's best friend.
It was entertainment night at the Senior Center.
Claude, the hypnotist, exclaimed: 'I'm here to put you into a trance;
I intend to hypnotize each and every member of the audience.'
The excitement was almost electric as Claude withdrew a beautiful
antique pocket watch from his coat.
'I want you each to keep your eye on this antique watch. It's a very
special watch. It's been in my family for six generations.'
He began to swing the watch gently back and forth while quietly
chanting, 'Watch the watch, watch the watch, and watch the watch......'
The crowd became mesmerized as the watch swayed back and forth, light
gleaming off its polished surface. Hundreds of pairs of eyes followed
swaying watch, until, suddenly, it slipped from the hypnotist's fingers
and fell to the floor, breaking into a hundred pieces.
'****!' said the hypnotist.
It took three days to clean up the Senior Center!
