Live to Be a Ripe Old Age

The day after Halloween a man saw a young boy eating a lot of candy. The man said, “You had better take it easy on that candy, young fellow! Too much of that will make you sick.”

The boy looked up and responded, “Mister, you could learn something from my great-grandfather, who lived to be 102.”

The man replied, “You mean to tell me that your great-grandfather ate a lot of candy and lived to be 102?”

“No. I mean to tell you that my great-grandfather lived to be 102 because he minded his own business!”

I suppose we all would do well to learn to mind our own business!

“A fool’s mouth lashes out with pride, but the lips of the wise protect them.”—Proverbs 14:3.
