    Subject: Fw: Empathy

    EMPATHY: the feeling that you understand and share another person’s experiences and emotions.
    These 12 short stories are all very good lessons, and really make us think twice about the daily happenings in our lives as we deal with others!

    1. Today, I interviewed my grandmother for part of a research paper I’m working on for my Psychology class. When I asked her to define success in her own words, she said, "Success is when you look back at your life and the memories make you smile."

    2. Today, I asked my mentor – a very successful business man in his 70s- what his top 3 tips are for success. He smiled and said, "Read something no one else is reading, think something no one else is thinking, and do something no one else is doing."

    3. Today, after my 72 hour shift at the fire station, a woman ran up to me at the grocery store and gave me a hug. When I tensed up, she realized I didn’t recognize her. She let go with tears of joy in her eyes and the most sincere smile and said, "On 9-11-2001, you carried me out of the World Trade Center."

    4. Today, after I watched my dog get run over by a car, I sat on the side of the road holding him and crying. And just before he died, he licked the tears off my face.

    5. Today at 7AM, I woke up feeling ill, but decided I needed the money, so I went into work. At 3PM I got laid off. On my drive home I got a flat tire. When I went into the trunk for the spare, it was flat too. A man in a BMW pulled over, gave me a ride, we chatted, and then he offered me a job. I start tomorrow.

    6. Today, as my father, three brothers, and two sisters stood around my mother’s hospital bed, my mother uttered her last coherent words before she died. She simply said, "I feel so loved right now. We should have gotten together like this more often."

    7. Today, I kissed my dad on the forehead as he passed away in a small hospital bed. About 5 seconds after he passed, I realized it was the first time I had given him a kiss since I was a little boy.

    8. Today, in the cutest voice, my 8-year-old daughter asked me to start recycling. I chuckled and asked, "Why?" She replied, "So you can help me save the planet." I chuckled again and asked, "And why do you want to save the planet?" Because that’s where I keep all my stuff," she said.

    9. Today, when I witnessed a 27-year-old breast cancer patient laughing hysterically at her 2-year-old daughter’s antics, I suddenly realized that, I need to stop complaining about my life and start celebrating it again.

    10. Today, a boy in a wheelchair saw me desperately struggling on crutches with my broken leg and offered to carry my backpack and books for me. He helped me all the way across campus to my class and as he was leaving he said, "I hope you feel better soon."

    11. Today, I was feeling down because the results of a biopsy came back malignant.When I got home, I opened an e-mail that said, "Thinking of you today. If you need me, I’m a phone call away." It was from a high school friend I hadn’t seen in 10 years.

    12. Today, I was traveling in Kenya and I met a refugee from Zimbabwe. He said he hadn’t eaten anything in over 3 days and looked extremely skinny and unhealthy. Then my friend offered him the rest of the sandwich he was eating. The first thing the man said was, "We can share it."

    The best sermons are lived, not preached.

    I am glad I have you to send these to.
    Some things are just worth passing on…
    hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

    Sometimes we take this dying thing all too seriously. We don’t really have any choice in the matter. Perhaps that is why I enjoyed reading these creative efforts. I hope you do too.

    Sex and Good Grammar

    Subject: Fw: Fwd: Sex and Good Grammar

    English teachers take note. BA

    On his 70th birthday, a man was given a gift certificate from his wife.
    The certificate was for consultation with an Indian medicine man (on a nearby reservation) who was rumored to have a simple cure for erectile dysfunction.
    The husband went to the reservation and saw the medicine man. The old Indian gave him a potion and, with a grip on his shoulder, warned, "This is a powerful medicine. You take only a teaspoonful, and then say: ‘1-2-3’. When you do, you will become manlier than you have ever been in your life, and you can perform for as long as you want."
    The man thanked the old Indian, and as he walked away, he turned and asked: "How do I stop the medicine from working?"
    "Your partner must say ‘1-2-3-4’" he responded, "but when she does, the medicine will not work again until the next full moon."
    He was very eager to see if it worked so he went home, showered, shaved, took a spoonful of the medicine, and then invited his wife to join him in the bedroom. When she came in, he took off his clothes and said: "1-2-3!"
    Immediately, he was the manliest of men.
    His wife was excited and began throwing off her clothes, and asked: "What was the ‘1-2-3’ for?"
    And that, boys and girls, is why we should never end our sentences with a preposition, because we could end up with a dangling participle.

    Scroll down for answers…


    1. C) Fender skirts, attached to the rear fenders, covered fully
    half the wheel streamlining the car.

    2. A) Blue

    3. A) Emergency brake. We grew up in much more dramatic times.

    4. B) PF Flyers.

    5. B) It was November 3, 1948, when Truman upset Republican Thomas
    Dewey in the first postwar presidential election.

    6. B) Sticky fly paper hanging from kitchen ceilings was common in
    American homes until insecticides like Flit became available in 40s.

    7. B) Movie stars. Most people over 55 recall with nostalgia the
    Dixie Cup ice cream picture lids that appeared all over America from
    1930 to 1954. In the final year, the lids were in 3D, full color,
    and styled in left and right action poses. These were used in stereo
    card viewers for the 3D effect.

    8. C) This is a tough one, but the answer is girdles and crinoline

    9. B) Good night, Mrs. Calabash, wherever you are.

    Pettit, the founders of The Toy Tinkers of Evanston, Illinois, and the
    creators of the TINKER TOY construction set, knew that the Thousand
    Wonder Builders would continue to inspire the imaginations of children

    are still made today, now by Hasbro.

    17. A) Getting picked last.

    18. B) Soap.

    19. A) Kill someone. I cannot remember ever seeing the Lone
    Ranger, Roy Rogers or other cowboy heroes actually kill someone.
    They would just shoot the gun out of the bad guy’s hand. There was no
    blood, no violence, just folks wondering who that masked man was.

    20. C.) 1957 Ford Thunderbird. Hard one but, let’s face it, easy
    answer. The option was available only that year.


    17-20 correct: You are not only older than dirt, but obviously
    gifted with mind bloat.

    12-16 correct: Not quite dirt yet, but your mind is definitely
    muddy, ready to muck up others.

    0-11 correct: You are one sad excuse of a geezer
