From My Cousin

I got this story in an email from my cousin in Irvine, CA -- it's just too good not to pass on. (My sincere apologies if this one has already visit all the in-boxes on the Internet, but it was new to me.)

A Baptist Preacher was seated next to a cowboy on a flight to Texas.

After the plane took off, the cowboy asked for a whiskey and soda, which was brought and placed before him.

The flight attendant then asked the preacher if he would like a drink.

Appalled, the preacher replied, "I'd rather be tied up and taken advantage of by women of ill-repute, than let liquor touch my lips."

The cowboy then handed his drink back to the attendant and said, "Me too --- I didn't know we had a choice."

I've heard variations on this theme. One I remember is a young woman/old woman on the plane; male flight attendant... old woman sez "I'd rather commit adultery!" And the rest is the same... ;-)

I really am honored by your praise. It's just me --- I'm a bit of a jerk about chain letters.

Yeah, it had the ring of an old joke. But that's part of the magic of senility -- all things become new.
