Re: Dharmaja on Cheerfulness
- Dear Arpan,
Before sending some greeting cards and photos to Dharmaja by airmail,
I am sending him the following joke my mother has just heard on a
radio program this afternoon:
In a coffee shop, two men who are good old friends are discussing:
Friend A -Hi, how are you doing?
Friend B -Great! My new business is running so well!
Friend A -I´m so happy for you! You´re very lucky.
Friend B -No doubt, I am! The business is so good that I´ve even got
a private secretary.
Friend A -Really?
Friend B -From now on he is going to solve alllllll my problems.
Friend A -How much are you going to pay him?
Friend B -$20,000 per month.
Friend A -That´s a lot of money! How are you going to afford that?!
Friend B -Well ... this is his first problem to solve!
With cheerful regards,
