True Story

My father-in-law took my mother-in-law out jewelry shopping a little before Christmas last year. They looked in several jewelry stores and she spied the perfect ring. She tried it on and it was beautiful. Although Mr. Pierce encouraged her to get it, she wanted to think about it over lunch.
After a wonderful lunch of shrimp and steak, topped off with a delicious chocolate dessert, Mr. Pierce leaned over and covered his wife's hand with his. Stroking her hand lovingly, he looked into her eyes, thinking about the ring. He asked, "Mary Lou, is there anything you'd like to stop by and pick up on the way home?"
She thought for a second and said, "Jimmy, I need a big bottle of Maalox."
He laughed and said, "Oh, honey, it's Christmas! Get the big bottle. Let's go all out and get you the cherry flavor!"
