A man was drinking in a bar when he noticed this beautiful young lady sitting next to him. ''Hello there,'' says the man, ''and what is your name?''
''Hello,'' giggles the woman, ''I'm Stacey. What's yours?''

''I'm Jim.''

''Jim, do you want to come over to my house tonight? I mean, right now??''

''Sure!'' replies Jim, ''Let's go!''

So Stacey takes Jim to her house and takes him to her room. Jim sits down on the bed and notices a picture of a man on Stacey's desk. ''Stacey, I noticed the picture of a man on your desk,'' Jim says.

''Yes? And what about it?'' asks Stacey.

''Is it your brother?''

''No, it isn't, Jim!'' Stacey giggles. Jim's eyes widen, suspecting that it might be Stacey's husband.

When he finally asks, ''Is it your husband?''

Stacey giggles even more, ''No, silly!'' Jim was relieved.

''Then, it must be your boyfriend!''

Stacey giggles even more while nibbling on Jim's ear. She says, ''No, silly!!''

''Then, who is it?'' Jim asks.

Stacey replies, ''That's me BEFORE my operation!!''

Har har. Cute, and funny. Thanks, DjB.
ha ha ha.... How many beers did Jim take in that bar? What ever the number, and think pre-Stacey sobered him up. Never trust the package, until you see its......content.

Hey Adomi,

I couldn't resist this chance to expose the geeky side of myself. After all, I suppose this site is called EnglishForward for a reason...

I do believe the correct term is "Tears of mirth", rather than Tears of fun. Emotion: wink

However, it's good to know you're laughing that hard.

Cheers,

Did I get it right this time?

I don't see any geeky side on anybody here, I didn't mean to make any fun of you, and I'm sorry if I offended you in anyway.

Thanks for pointing it out so politely. That's also learning.

My pleasure, Adomi. And no, you did not offend me in any way. If you had, I would definitely have made you aware of that, don't worry. Emotion: smile

By the way, I'm not a native English speaker either, I'm from India. I just love the language, and I have to admit that I speak, read and write it a lot better than my native languages.

I'm glad you and others with open minds like yours are here to share information and tips - it is highly constructive and a fun way to learn.

Kudos to whoever first thought of a site like this!

Cheers,

Well, I'm happy the matter is cleared up and looks like it was a misunderstanding.

You know there are lots of people who speak their official language better than their vernacular. I'm one of them. I'm more comfortable with french than Haussa and Bassa,and I'm a little ashame not to be able to express myself that good in English too, because English too is one of my official languages..
