Southern Women Do It With Style*…Time to Smile*

The doctor, after an examination, sighed and said, “I’ve got some bad news, Millie.

You have cancer in a very advanced stage. You’d best put your affairs in order.”
The woman was shocked, but managed to compose herself and walk into the waiting room where her daughter had been waiting.

“Well, dear, we women celebrate when things are good, and we celebrate when things don’t go so well. In this case, things aren’t going so well.
I have cancer. Let’s go to the club and have a martini.”

After 3 or 4 martinis, the two were feeling less somber. There were a few laughs and a few more martinis. They were eventually approached by some of the woman’s old country club friends, who were curious as to what the two were celebrating.

The woman told her friends they were drinking to her impending end, “I’ve been diagnosed with AIDS.” The friends were aghast, gave the woman their condolences and beat a hasty retreat.

After the friends left, the woman’s daughter leaned over and whispered, Momma, I thought you said you were dying of cancer, but you told your friends you were dying of AIDS! Why in the world did you do that?”

“Because I don’t want any of those bitches sleeping with your father after I’m gone.”

And THAT, my friends, is what we in the south call, “Putting Your Affairs In Order.”
