It was a Sunday morning. The Pastor, tired of the same old services decided to mix things up a bit.
He announced to the small congregation that he was going to pick a topic and get the attendees involved.
“Today, I am going to talk about the wonderful institution of marriage”. He surveyed the room and asked, “Is anyone here approaching a wedding anniversary of more than 25 years?”
A small, elderly man slowly rose in the back row and said, “Me.”
“Tell us”, asked the Pastor, “How many years have you been married?”
“Almost 50 years” the man replied.
“Wow.” The pastor proclaimed. “Care to share any secrets to your longevity?”
“Well,” the man said, I like to take my wife on trips. For example for our 25th anniversary I took her to Paris.”
“And what do you have planned for your 50th?”
“I’m going to go and bring her back!”
