Thursday's Essay Preview

The first paragraphs of Thursday's essay, "Nag, Nag, Nag --- A Humorous Essay, " read as follows:

An attorney arrived home late, after a very tough day trying to get a stay of execution.

His last minute plea for clemency to the governor had failed and he was feeling worn out and depressed.  As soon as he walked through the door at home, his wife started on him about,

'What time of night to be getting home is this? Where have you been? Dinner is cold and I'm not reheating it . . . . And on and on and on . . .

[This joke continues for several more paragraphs.  Read the rest of it on Thursday.]

Thursday's Essay Excerpt - from the last paragraphs of the essay

[Obviously, the following is the end of a joke that begins earlier in the essay.  Read the beginning of this joke on Thursday.]

All  the way back, the elderly husband became the classic grouchy man.   He
fussed and complained, and scolded his wife relentlessly  during the entire
return drive.
The more he chided her, the more agitated he became.  He just wouldn't let
up for a single minute.
To her relief, they finally arrived at the restaurant.  As  the woman got
out of the car, and hurried inside to retrieve her glasses, the old  geezer
yelled to her,"While you're in there, you might as well get my hat and the credit card."
