Here’s The Story…..
There once was a violist playing in the Winnipeg Symphony. He wasn’t that wonderful a player, so
he sat at the back of the section. One day, he was cleaning out his attic and discovered an
old lamp. He gave it a rub and out popped a genie.
“For letting me out of my lamp, I’ll grant you three wishes!” he said.
The violist thought for a moment and replied, “Make me a far better musician than I am now.”
The genie told him that this would be done. He was to go to sleep and in the morning, he would be
a much better musician. The next day, he woke up to find himself the principal violist of the symphony.
Well, this was just great, he thought! But he knew he could do better.
He rubbed the lamp again and out popped the genie.
“You have two more wishes!” he said.
“I want you to make me a better musician than I am even now!”
Once again, the genie told him to go to bed and when he woke up, it would be so. When the violist awoke,
he found he was now the principal violist of the Berlin Philharmonic. Well, the violist thought this was pretty
grand, but knew he could do better yet. He rubbed on the lamp again and once more out came the genie.
“This is your last wish.” the genie said.
“I want you to make me yet a better musician still!”
Yet again, he was told to go to sleep. The next morning, he woke up to find himself back in Winnipeg,
sitting in the last desk of the second violin section.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! Have a GREAT THURSDAY!, people, stay safe, and whatever you do, don’t
forget to laff it up! Peace, I am outta here! Eucman! 😁

“The Wall Street Journal reported that America has a surplus of cheese and that every
person in the country would have to eat an extra three pounds of cheese this year to get
rid of it. So the next time the pizza guy judges you for ordering extra cheese, just
say, ‘I’m doing this for America.'” -Jimmy Fallon
“The electronics company LG identified a new phenomenon called low-battery anxiety. People
become nervous, distracted, and frustrated when their phones are about to die. If you are not
familiar with low-battery anxiety, it’s a real condition that primarily
affects people with no actual problems.” -James Corden

One evening after dinner, a five-year-old son noticed that his mother
had gone out and he asked, “Where did mommy go?”
His father told him, “Mommy is at a Tupperware party.”
This explanation satisfied him for only a moment. “What’s a Tupperware party, Dad?”
The man had always given my son honest answers, so he figured a simple explanation
would be the best approach. “Well, son,” he said, “at a Tupperware party, a bunch
of ladies sit around and sell plastic bowls to each other.”
He nodded, indicating that he understood this curious pastime.
Then he burst into laughter. “Come on, Dad,” he said. “What is it really?” 😳😳😳😳
Wednesday’s’ Movie Trivia of the day! What movie is this quote from??? “
“Just thought I’d ask on the off chance, you know… like “faint heart” and that. Well, there goes that dream.
Well… I best go over there and do whatever that thing over there I was gonna do was.”
Answer: The Banshees of Inisherin!
In one of the most remarkable performances I’ve ever seen in a film, actor Barry Keoghan, playing Dominic Kearney, gets up the courage to approach his friend’s sister Siobhan Súilleabháin (Best Supporting Actress nominee Kerry Condon) and asks if she’d consider a relationship. Dominic is something of a simpleton, but deceptively so as at subtle moments in the film he exhibits signs that there’s more to him than one might expect. Mr. Keoghan was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his performance here in the tragicomedy “The Banshees of Inisherin”.
