Remember when I promised to mail doodles to whoever made me laugh most? It’s taken me eleventy thousand years to get around to it, but I have decided there are three winners. Lexie of This Wabi-Sabi Life sent a great priest/minister/rabbi joke, Bine from Sleepless in Cologne told me about some boys with gutter brain, and Coffee Betsy, who didn’t even enter wins anyway because she actually made my day by referencing the late great and (therefore quite regrettably) formerly immortal Anya Christina Emanuella Jenkins

So my family has crashed, and I’m up- at least until my benadryl kicks in. My right eye has inexplicably decided to swell and itch today. The left one’s just phoning it in: no swelling but itchy. With sudden free quiet time, I’m picking up my Sharpie and doodling. Email me your addresses, chicas. I’ll mail doodlies sometime. Read on for Lexie’s joke.
A minister, a priest and a rabbi are chatting about life. The priest says “I believe life begins at conception, how about ya’ll?” (I guess he’s a Southern priest!)
The minister thinks a moment and says, “Well, I believe life really begins with the first breath a child takes.”
The rabbi shakes his head, looks at the other two and says “My friends, life begins when your last child goes off to college and the dog dies.”
