… but apparently not everyone is overjoyed at the thought.
When the guys got together for poker on Friday night, one of the regulars was missing.
“Where’s Frank?” Charlie asked.
“In the hospital,” Joe said. “He had a heart attack.”
“Holy crap!” Hank said. “How’d that happen?”
“It was that blizzard we had,” Joe said. “Frank’s doctor warned him his heart was weak, and he had to avoid all strenuous activity. He said absolutely no snow shoveling.”
“Guess Frank didn’t listen,” George said.
“Sure he listened,” Joe said. “Frank’s no dummy.”
“So what happened?” Charlie asked.
“Well,” Joe said, “when we had all that snow yesterday, Frank didn’t know what to do. His wife can’t shovel ’cause she’s got a bad back, and Frank can’t shovel ’cause he’s got a bad heart, and they can’t afford to buy a snowblower. Then that lazy good-for-nothing teenage son of theirs suddenly pipes up, ‘Don’t worry, Mom and Dad — from now on I’ll do all the shoveling.’ Frank had a heart attack on the spot.”
