Carnival Date

A wonderful thing about living in Florida is the weather. We have outdoor events all year round. So Joe took this weeks blind date to the carnival.

They get inside the gate and Joe asks "What would you like to do first, Gertrude?" "I want to get weighed," she said. So they wander over to the weight guesser. He guessed 160 pounds. She got on the scale; it read 157 and she won a prize.

Next, the couple went on the Ferris Wheel. When the ride was over, Joe again asked Gertrude what she wanted to do. "I want to get weighed," she said smiling from ear to ear. So back to the weight guesser they went. Since they had been there before, he guessed her correct weight, and Joe lost his three bucks.

They walked around the carnival for awhile and again he asked where to next. "I want to get weighed," she responded. By this time, Joe figured this one was a little too crazy for him, so he rushed her home, dropped her off at the curb, gave her a handshake, and sped off.

As soon as she went inside Gertrude's roommate Laura, asked her about the blind date, "How did it go?"
Gertrude responded, "Oh, Waura, it was wousy."
