Do you think it would be all right if I gave my doctor a little gift? I tried for years to get pregnant and couldn’t and he finally did it.
My mother is mean and short-tempered. I think she is going through her mental pause.
You told some woman whose husband had lost all interest in sex to send him to a doctor. Well, my husband lost all interest in sex years ago and he IS a doctor.
My boyfriend is going to be twenty years old next month. I’d like to give him something nice for his birthday. What do you think he’d like?
Never mind what he’d like. Give him a tie.
Our son was married in January. Five months later his wife had a ten-pound baby girl. They said the baby was premature. Tell me, can a baby this big be that early?
The baby was on time, the wedding was late. Forget it.
I know boys will be boys, but my boy is seventy-three and he’s still chasing women. Any suggestions?
Don’t worry. My dog has been chasing cars for years, but if he ever caught one, he wouldn’t know what to do with it.
I have always wanted to have my family history traced, but I can’t afford to spend a lot of money to do it. Any suggestions?
Yes. Run for public office.
What inspires you most to write?
The Bureau of Internal Revenue.
I am forty-four years old and I would like to meet a man my age with no bad habits.
So would I.
What’s the difference between a wife and a mistress?
Night and Day!
