The 84-year-old bride

I get my fair share of email forwards from blogmom and blogdad, most of which I delete before reading.

(Sorry, blogmom & blogdad! But mama's gotta get to work and bring home the bacon, peeps.)

Anyhow, for some reason, I opened and read this one. Gave me a good little chuckle. Here goes:

The local news station was interviewing an 84-year-old lady because she had just gotten married -- for the fourth time.

The interviewer asked her questions about her life, about what it felt like to be marrying again at 84, and then about her new husband's occupation.

"He's a funeral director," she answered.

He then asked her if she wouldn't mind telling him a little about her first three husbands and what they did for a living. She paused for a few moments, needing time to reflect on all those years.

After a short time, a smile came to her face and she answered proudly, explaining that she first married a banker when she was in her early 20's, then a circus ringmaster when in her 40's, later on a preacher when in her 60's and, now, in her 80's, a funeral director.

The interviewer looked at her, quite astonished, and asked why she had married four men with such diverse careers.

"Easy son," she smiled. "I married one for the money... two for the show... three to get ready... and four to go!"

Fifty more years, and I could be on my fourth marriage too! (Let's hope not!)
