Gracie Gets a Letter from her SisterMay 1, 2010
George: Look. You got a letter from your sister, Bessie.
Gracie: Oh! Bessie!
George: What did she say? Did she say anything?
Gracie: Well, she’s just wonderful herself. But her son, Willy…
George: Willy. Willy? That’s the one with the high blood pressure. The one who sleeps on the floor to keep his blood pressure down?
Gracie: Yes, that’s the one.
George: Smart kid.
George: Yes. What about Willy?
Gracie: Well, he broke his back.
George: I’m glad to hear that.
George: Broke his back? How did he do that?
Gracie: Well, on account that he’s left-handed.
George: He broke his back because he’s left-handed.
Gracie: Yes. Well, you see, what happened was he had a doughnut in his right-hand pocket and when he went to take it out with his left hand…
George: He broke his back?
George: Well you tell Bessie, the next time to tell Willy that if he’s got a doughnut in his right-hand pocket to try to take it out with his right-hand.
Gracie: Yah. But that’s hard to do when you have your pants on backwards.
George: He had his pants on backwards?
Gracie: Yes. Well, you see, what happened was he had a suit of clothes with two pairs of pants and he put one pair on frontwards and he put one pair on backwards.
George: Are you sure that he could GO either way?
Gracie: That’s when the truck hit him.
George: The truck. What truck?
Gracie: The truck that didn’t have its lights lit.
George: Why didn’t the truck have it’s lights lit?
Gracie: Because…he had…
George: Hold it. Hold It! HOLD IT! Did the guy in the truck have his pants on backwards or did Willy have his pants on backwards?
Gracie: Oh, George, you’re trying to confuse me.
George: I’M confusing YOU!?
Gracie: Willy had his pants on backwards.
George: Oh. But the fellow in the truck; why didn’t he have his lights lit?
Gracie: He didn’t have to. It was daytime.
Gracie: Are you getting this now?
George: Oh, no, oh, no. Well, how’s the fella,… but if he didn’t have his lights lit didn’t he see Willy coming?
Gracie: He didn’t know it was Willy. He saw two pairs of pants coming toward him and he drove between them.
George: Good Bye!
