Mum’s Melons Joke

February 13, 2012

When I was a child at home, our family sometimes began breakfast with cantaloupe or honeydew melon slices.

One morning my wonderful mother (for some reason called “mum” as if we were British) quoted from the Roaring Twenties a gentle little joke.

Mum smiled and, always a witty woman, recited…

“His girl-friend says: ‘I can’t elope,’ but her beau says, “Oh, honey, do!” 

It was just so innocent and funny, out of nowhere, we all laughed and, of course, never forgot the melons joke.

I hope you won’t, either 😉
