32 • The Optimist
At the playground, a young boy fell off the swing and hit his head. Worried that he might have a concussion, his mom checked him all night. Every hour, she’d gently shake him and ask, “What’s your name?”
Soon, he began moaning in protest each time she entered the room.
When she went in at 5:00 am, she found something white on his forehead. Leaning close, she saw a crayon-scrawled message taped to his forehead.
It read: “My name is Daniel.”
Bad Day Gambling
A lady is having a bad day at the tables in Vegas. Down to her last $100, completely exasperated, she cries, “What rotten luck! What in the world should I do now?”
A gentleman next to her, trying to calm her down, suggests, “I don’t know. Why don’t you play your age?”
He walks away. Moments later, he is intrigued to hear a great commotion at the roulette table. Maybe, she won!
Rushing back to the table and pushing his way through the crowd, he is stunned to see the lady lying
on the foor, with the table operator kneeling over her.
He asks, “What happened? Is she alright?”
The operator replies, “I don’t know, buddy. She put all her money on 29. When 36 came up, she fainted!”
