How did you know? / With This Ring / Losing Weight

ImageHow did you know?
I was sitting in the foyer of a bank when a young man walked by and then stopped for a moment on his way out. I noticed that one of the latches on his overstuffed briefcase was unfastened, putting strain on the remaining latch.
“You’re going to lose the contents of your briefcase,” I warned him.
Just then, the case burst open. He stared at me with something akin to fear in his eyes as he gasped, “How on earth did you do that?”
With This Ring
My husband, Mike, and I had several stressful months of financial difficulties. So, one evening, I was touched to see him gazing at the diamond wedding ring that symbolized our marriage.
“With this ring,” I began romantically.
“We could pay off the Visa,” he responded.
Losing Weight
Walter was sitting in the doctor’s office for his annual physical, going over a few fine points about his health with his doctor.
The doctor said, “Your blood pressure is a little high, Walter. You need to watch your diet and lose a little weight.”
“But doc, I’m losing weight more and more each day.”
“Oh, really? How are you doing it?” asked the doctor.
“Well, just six weeks ago, I’d eat lunch at 12:00 and have a snack around 3:00. Just today, I had breakfast at 7:30, waited two hours, had a snack at 9:30 and then I waited an hour and a half and ate lunch at 11:00. Then I waited 45 minutes and had a snack before coming here.”
“And with this regiment, you’re losing weight?” asked the doctor.
“Yeah,” Walter said excitedly. “More meals and less wait!”
