With the holidays upon us, we prepare to gather with family and friends to celebrate and enjoy. Some of the delicious offerings will be made with onions. To protect your eyes from the tearing and burning during the preparation of this vegetable, peel, slice and chop your onion next to an open flame on your stovetop. The gases are absorbed and will not irritate your eyes. Be careful not to allow your clothing, hair or cookware near the open flame. Pleae keep children away from stove as well.
An elderly man in Phoenix calls his son in New York and says, "I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing, forty-five years of misery is enough."
"Pop, what are you talking about?" the son screams.
"We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the old man says.
"We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and tell her," and he hangs up.
Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. "Like heck they're getting divorced," she shouts, "I'll take care of this." She calls Phoenix immediately, and screams at the old man, "You are NOT getting divorced. Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?" and hangs up.
The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. "Okay," he says, "They're coming for Thanksgiving and paying their own fares Now what do we tell them for Christmas?
