How to Start a Fight…

For those of you needing some humor, I thought I would post this from a recent e-mail I received. Enjoy! 😀


          One  year, I decided to buy my mother-in-law a cemetery plot as
a Christmas gift….

          The next  year, I didn’t buy her a gift.

          When she asked  me why, I replied,

          “Well, you still haven’t used the gift I bought you last year!”

          And that’s how the fight started…..


          My wife and I were watching Who Wants To Be A Millionaire while
we were in bed.

          I turned to  her and said, ‘Do you want to have  Sex?’

          ‘No,’ she answered. I then said,

          ‘Is that your final answer?’

          She didn’t even look  at me this time, simply saying, ‘Yes..’

          So I said, “Then I’d like to phone a friend.”

          And that’s when the fight started…


          I took my wife to a restaurant.

          The waiter, for some reason, took my order first.

          “I’ll have  the rump steak, rare, please.”

          He said,  “Aren’t you worried about the mad cow?”

          “Nah, she can order for herself.”

          And that’s when the fight  started…..


          My  wife and I were sitting at a table at her high  school
reunion, and she kept staring at a  drunken man swigging his
drink as he sat alone at a nearby table.

          I asked her, “Do you know  him?”

          “Yes”, she sighed,

          “He’s my old  boyfriend.  I understand he took to drinking
right after we split up those many years ago,  and I hear he
hasn’t been sober since.”

          “My  God!” I said, “Who would think a person could go on
celebrating that long?”

          And then the fight  started…


          When our lawn mower broke and wouldn’t run, my wife kept hinting
to me that I should get it  fixed.  But, somehow I always had
something else to take care of first, the shed, the  boat,
making beer… Always something more important to me. Finally she
thought of  a clever way to make her point.

          When I arrived home one day, I found her seated in the  tall
grass, busily snipping away with a tiny  pair of sewing
scissors. I watched silently for a short time and then went into
the house. I was gone only a minute, and when I  came out again
I handed her a toothbrush. I said, “When you finish cutting the
grass, you  might as well sweep the driveway.”

          The doctors say I will walk again, but I will always  have a  limp.


          My wife sat down next to me as I was flipping channels.

          She asked, “What’s on TV?”

          I said, “Dust.”

          And then the fight started…


          Saturday  morning I got up early, quietly dressed, made my
lunch, and slipped quietly into the garage.  I hooked up the
boat up to the  van and proceeded to back out into a torrential
downpour.. The wind was blowing 50mph, so I pulled back into the
garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the weather
would  be bad all day.

          I went back into the house,  quietly undressed, and slipped back
into bed. I cuddled up to my wife’s back; now with a different
anticipation, and whispered, “The  weather out there is

          My loving wife of 5 years replied, “And, can you believe my
stupid husband is out fishing in that?”

          And that’s how the fight started…


          My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming

          She said, “I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 150 in
about 3 seconds.”

          I bought her a bathroom scale.

          And then the fight started……


          After retiring, I went to the Social Security office  to apply
for Social Security.

          The woman behind the counter asked me for my driver’s License to
verify my age.

          I looked in my  pockets and realized I had left my wallet at
home.  I told the woman that I was very sorry, but I would have
to go home and come back later.

          The woman said, ‘Unbutton your shirt’.

          So I opened my shirt revealing my curly silver hair.

          She said, ‘That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for
me’ and she processed my Social Security application.

          When I got home, I excitedly told my wife about my experience at
the Social Security office.  She said, ‘You should have  dropped
your pants. You might have gotten disability too.’

          And then the fight started…


          My wife was standing nude, looking in the bedroom  mirror.

          She was not happy with what she saw and said to me,

          “I feel horrible; I look old, fat and ugly.  I really need you
to pay me a compliment.’

          I replied, “Your eyesight’s damn near perfect.”

          And then the fight started……..


I rear-ended a car this morning…the start of a REALLY bad day!

The driver got out of the other car, and he was a DWARF!!

He looked up at me and said ‘I am NOT Happy!’

So I said, ‘Well, which one ARE you then?’

That’s how the fight started.

Regarding the blog name, Dragon’s Dreams ~ The name comes from my love-affairs with both Dragons and Dreams (capital Ds). It’s another extension of who I am, a facet for expression; a place and way to reach other like-minded, creative individuals. I post poetry and images that fascinate or move me, because that’s my favorite way to view the world. I post about things important to me and the world in which we live, try to champion extra important political, societal and environmental issues, etc. Sometimes I wax philosophical, because it’s also a place where I always seem to learn about myself, too, by interacting with some of the brightest minds, souls and hearts out there. It’s all about ‘connection(s)’ and I don’t mean “net-working” with people for personal gain, but rather, the expansion of the 4 L’s: Light, Love, Laughter, Learning.

    Have you heard the one about?

    A husband and wife were sitting at the kitchen table.
    Hubby with a news paper, and wife with a cup of coffee and menacing look on her face.
    She was trying to engage her husband in another repetitious and petty argument.
    Daily she antagonized this calm man with attempts at starting a fight,
    yet he always remained calm and patient with his agitated and argumentative wife.
    Bewildered, his wife asked one morning how he managed to always keep his cool
    when she relentlessly harassed him, constantly trying to provoke a fight.
    The husband lowered his newspaper and said:
    “Good morning dear, well if you must know, I’ve been secretly attending anger management classes to address the frustrating and angry emotions I have trapped inside”
    His wife responds with a curled-lip snarl in her voice:
    “Well, keep talking, this must be some useless information that I just can’t wait to hear”
    Her husband calmly responds:
    “Well honey, you really must remember all the times you have berated me, insisting that I join you, in those miserable fights and then you see me calmly leave the room”
    The wife says:
    “Yeah, Yeah, so what, everybody knows you’re a whimp of a fighter and always run away”
    The husband then says:
    “Well my dear, I really don’t run away, I’m actually utilizing those therapy techniques I have studied in anger management class! And you know, by golly, I have developed a new and unique approach to the ago old problem and have been experimenting with it. That’s when I go into the bathroom, close the door and scrub the crap out of the toilet bowl and remove that slimy black bathtub mildew with any toothbrush you own”
