A Couple of Dollars for Dinner

February 11th 2008

My wife, who sent the story below to me via email, thinks it’s pretty funny. I must admit, I did laugh aloud when I read it and I thought our readers might enjoy it as well, so here it is:
 

A woman was walking down the street when she was accosted by a homeless woman who asked her for a couple of dollars for dinner. The woman took out her billfold, extracted 10 dollars and asked, “Now, if I give you this money, will you just go out and buy some wine with it instead of dinner?”
 
“No,” I had to stop drinking years ago, the homeless woman replied.
 
“Well, will you be using it to go shopping instead of buying food?” the woman asked.
 
“No,” I don’t waste time shopping, the homeless woman said. “I need to spend all my time trying to stay alive.”
 
“Okay. So will you be spending this on a beauty salon instead of food?” the woman asked.
 
“Are you NUTS!” replied the homeless woman. “I haven’t had my hair done in 20 years!”
 
“Well,” said the woman, “I’m not going to give you the money. Instead, I’m going to take you out for dinner with my hubby and myself tonight.”
 
The homeless woman was astounded. “Won’t your husband be furious with you for doing that? I know I’m dirty, and I probably smell pretty disgusting.”
 
The woman replied, “That’s okay. It’s important for him to see what a woman looks like after she has given up shopping, hair appointments and wine.”
