Relief


We were jus’ sitting down to dinner when Adam recited a then-popular commercial tag line. Only he changed the ending to something less than proper.

“How do you spell relief,” he said, “F-A-R-T.”

Everyone but Deirdre and Marcy laughed. Marcy was too young to really understand what we were laughing about at the time.

Deirdre on the other hand, had a puzzled look on her face. She was thinking about what Adam had jus’ said.

Suddenly, she exclaimed, “Huh-uh! That’s not how you spell relief!”

“Oh, yeah,” Mom challenged her, “Then how DO you spell relief?”

Deirdre answered, “R-O-L-A-I-D-S.”

It took ten minutes for our laughter to subside.
