Sometimes, Silence Is Golden

Sitting in the breakfast area
of the motel, a man watched
the local news on the TV. It
was an item on how Americans
are getting fatter and fatter.
He turned to a little, old skinny
guy who also was watching
the TV and said, “I guess we
are getting bigger.” Rising from
his seat, the old guy stood to his
full four-foot eleven inches and
said, “What they don’t tell you
is that we are getting taller and
taller so we can handle that
extra weight. It’s lies all lies.
That’s all you hear.” The man
went back to his sausage patty
and scrambled eggs and mumbled
to himself, “Well all-righty
then.”
