the major sphere of responsibility.” 😱

I have not seen anyone dying of laughter, but I know millions who are dying because they are not laughing. – Dr. Madan Kataria

I will follow the upward road today; I will keep my face to the light. I will think high thoughts as I go my way; I will do what I know is right. I will look for the flowers by the side of the road;

G U A R A N T E D T O M A K E Y O U L A F F….

While on leave, my Marine buddy and I met two nursing
students from Southern California. After chatting them up
awhile, the conversation turned to what we did in the
service. When we told them we were in the infantry, the
girls seemed very impressed, giving us big smiles as they
told us how sweet that was.

Since infantry and sweet are seldom used in the same
sentence, I was a little confused. Until, that is, one of
the girls said, “We admire any man who works with infants.”😐

Friday’s Quizzer is…….

One day, I was waiting to get on the subway. I was eating the apple I always have for breakfast, and I decided to sit next to a homeless man on the bench. While waiting, we saw a fat man walk by us. The hobo then muttered, “Pig.”

I didn’t give it a second thought, except that the comment was rude. There were still a few minutes until the next subway train arrived, and another man walked past us. He was tall, wearing a business suit. As he walked past, the hobo said, “Human.” I thought nothing of this remark, other than he was, obviously, a human. The subway finally arrived, and I left for work.

The next day, the hobo was still there at the subway station. Today I watched from a distance. Several people walked past him; a skinny woman, a muscular man, and an old lady. In turn he muttered, “Soup,” “Pork,” and “Cookie.”
Odd labels, I thought, because obviously none of them was a cookie. I got on the subway again, and proceeded to work. I could not stop thinking about the odd man at the subway station.

I observed him for days to come, and he continued this odd behavior. He would call people bread, carrot, rabbit, milk, and other strange things.
The next day, I walked by the homeless man once again, and he silently muttered, “Apple.”
At that point, I finally recognized what was going on. Then, remembering something, I was stricken with horror.

What was the hobo’s ability, and why was I horrified?
