We had a few summer squash lying around just waiting to be used. Needing something to take along to the neighbors the other night, Pickle Queen decided to make squash brownies. They must be somewhat healthy as my blood sugar level wasn’t affected as much as it is with other sweets. The healthy aspect of the brownies reminded me of this story.
An 85-year-old couple, having been married almost 60 years, die in a car crash. They had been in good health the last ten years, mainly due to the wife’s neurotic interest in health food.
When they reached the pearly gates, St. Peter took them to their mansion, which was decked out with a beautiful kitchen and master bath suite with a Jacuzzi. As they oohed and aahed, the old man asked St. Peter how much this was going to cost.
“It’s free,” St. Peter replied, “this is Heaven.” Next they went out back to see the championship golf course the home backed up to. They would have golfing privileges every day, and each week the course change to a new one representing the great golf courses on Earth.
The old man asked, “What are the green fees?”
“This is heaven,” St. Peter replied. “You play for free.”
Next they went to the clubhouse and saw the lavish buffet lunch with the cuisine’s of the world laid out.
“How much to eat?” asked the old man.
“Don’t you understand yet?” St. Peter asked. “This is heaven. It’s free!”
“Well, where are the low-fat and low cholesterol foods?” the old man asked timidly.
St Peter replied, “That’s the best part. You can eat as much as you like of whatever you like and you never get fat and you never get sick. This is Heaven.”
The old man looked at his wife and said, “You and your darn bran muffins. I could have been here ten years ago!”
