Looking for Geraniums

   A man walked into a flower shop and after looking around for several minutes, asked the clerk if there were any potted geraniums he could buy.

   "I'm sorry," said the clerk in flower shop, we don't have potted geraniums. Could you use African violets instead?"

   The customer replied sadly: "No, it was geraniums my wife told me to water while she was gone. 



Visiting Mother-in-Law

   Mrs. Jones was reading a letter at breakfast. Suddenly she looked up suspiciously at her husband.

   "Henry," she said, "I've just received a letter from mother saying she isn't accepting our invitation to come and stay, as we do not appear to want her. What does she mean by that? I told you to write and say that she was to come at her own convenience. You did write, didn't you?"

   "Er, yes, I did," said the husband. "But I couldn't spell convenience, so I made it risk."
