221. Taking a Breather


Bugsy went to Confession, the first time in twenty years!
He thought he might drop dead one day so he went to allay his fears.
The Priest asked a gentle question 'Have you slept with a woman? he said,
Bugsy replied 'No, Father!' but his face went rather red!
'I'll ask you again! Mind what you say!' the Priest spoke sternly now,
'Have you ever slept with a woman?' . Sweat broke out on Bugsy's brow.
'No, never, never, Father!' Bugsy was quite emphatic.
The Father's brow grew clouded and the atmosphere dramatic.
Now he roared with religious zeal 'I ask you once again;
Have you slept with a woman? I know the ways of men.'
By now poor Bugsy was shattered, and he longed to tell the truth.
He knew he'd made love to women many times since his youth!
'I've never actually slept' he said 'If you know what I mean.
But I have sometimes dozed off a bit....

You between!'

G'Day Dear Brenda ~~ Great joke, and it is confusing to say he SLEPT with a woman, but he got it right in the end. Thanks for your comments and the weather is hotting up all right. I may try some iced tea too!!
Take care, Love, Merle.

Naughty as usual..!!!!!

I think they should change this terminology 'slept'. It can be so confusing at confession times :))))))
