I am feeling levitatious (in need of levity) and my funny bone is feeling ticklish. So today I offer you a joke. I have told it before, but it’s a good one, especially if you can put yourself into the story…

A young girl was writing an essay for school and asked her father for help, “Dad, what is the difference between annoyance, anger and exasperation?”

The father picked up the telephone and dialled a number at random. A man who answered the phone and the father said, “Hello, is Melvin there?”

The man answered, “There is no one living here named Melvin. You’ve got the wrong number.”

The father said to his daughter, “That man was not happy with my call. I annoyed him. Now watch…”

The father hit the redial button. “Hello, is Melvin there?”

“Now look here!” came the heated reply. “You just called this number, and I told you that there is no Melvin here!” The receiver was slammed down hard.

The father turned to his daughter and said, “You see, that was anger. Now I’ll show you what exasperation is.”

He redialled the number, and a violent voice roared, “WHAT?”

The father calmly said, “Hello, this is Melvin. Have there been any calls for me?”

Be blessed, be a blessing and try not to exasperate anyone 🙂
