Once upon a time, a perfect man and a perfect woman met. After a perfect courtship, they had a perfect wedding. Their life together was, of course, perfect.
One rainy, stormy Saturday night this perfect couple was driving their perfect car along a dark winding road, when they noticed someone at the side of the road in distress. Being the perfect couple they stopped to help. There stood the Easter Bunny and a HUGE pile of Easter baskets.
Not wanting to disappoint any children on Easter Sunday, the perfect couple loaded up the Easter Bunny and all the baskets into their perfect car. Soon they were driving along delivering Easter Baskets. Unfortunately, the driving conditions deteriorated and the perfect couple and the Easter Bunny had an accident. Only one of them survived the accident.
The mind numbing question here is: Who was the survivor?

Scroll down for the answer...

The perfect woman survived. She's the only one that really existed in the first place. Everyone knows there is no Easter Bunny and no such thing as a perfect man.

Here's the same out come from a man's perspective...

So if there is no perfect man and no Easter Bunny then that means the perfect woman must have been driving which explains the accident in the first place.
hope you had a laugh on me!

Mindless Monday

it's monday - not just any monday though - it's a monday after the first show of the year! all the hard work, time & energy that goes into preparing for a show is suddenly over and it leaves your brain feeling a little "empty" - it's just that feeling of DUH, what do i do now? the show was a wonderful success and a great way to kick off the show season. i have lots of orders to fill - but for today i mostly sat back & stared out the window and did nothing. i watched the birds that randomly stopped at the feeder and thought a lot of a few of the wonderful people in my life who help make these shows possible - my dad who is totally one of my #1 fans and always has just the right words to say, my husband who is there for me at every turn and absolutely my best friend and soul mate and my sister, my partner, my confidant, my encourager - i love you all VERY much!

hope you all had a wonderful monday and please come by our EtsyAngels thread to find out how you can help the families of those who gave their lives in the line of duty!

Esty Angels ANSWER THE CALL in March

As human beings we are all charged with the idea to love one another as we love ourselves, but there are those among us who live and breathe these words to their very souls. They are represented in every race, color and creed and together they vow to protect and serve their fellow man.The “Answer The Call” fund was established in 1985 to give financial comfort to the spouses & children of the New York City firefighters and police offices who lost their lives in the line of duty. Within 15 minutes both of the World Trade Center towers were intentionally struck by aircraft. We knew as a country we had been attacked. While thousands of people rushed to leave the burning buildings hundreds of first responders answered the call and rushed into the inferno to help save those they could. On September 11th 2001 - 343 New York City Firefighters, 23 New York City Police Officers, 37 Port Authority Police Officers and 15 EMT Personal were killed in a horrific act of terrorism.

The families, spouses & children of these heroes are left to carry on after this senseless & catastrophic attack.The Answer the Call fund has been depending on the generosity of citizens for it’s funding since its inception in 1985. In 1987 the fund provided 320 families with annual financial assistance. After 9/11 their efforts expanded to include the families of Port Authority officers and EMS. By 2008, they made the same annual financial commitment to nearly 700 families

Don’t let the words “We Will Never Forget” become a cliché or a passing thought – please won’t you Answer the Call to help the families of those who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice without question or hesitation.During the month of March the Etsy Angels team will be helping to raise money for the Answer the Call fund. You can help in three ways either by donating proceeds or a portion of them from sales you make as an Etsy shop owner, by making purchases from the participating shops or by making a monetary contribution to a paypal account that will be set up to collect the funds for this months drive. Please remember that even small donations when combined with others can make a difference.

The families of these heroes still need our help we need to show them
