A man goes to his therapist to have a dream interpreted. He tells the doctor that he was dreaming of eating a big meal. A seven course meal. He started with the soup and was going to move onto the salad next.
As he finished his soup and put his spoon down the bowl refilled itself by magic. He again finished the soup and again the bowl refilled itself. Every time he finished the soup and tried to move onto the salad he could not. He asked his doctor what the hidden meaning was.
The doctor's reply, "It only proves that you cannot change courses in the middle of a dream."
One summer, many years ago, there was a Key Club "Farm Boy/City Boy Exchange" program. The city boy from a Chicago suburb spent several days in southern Illinois on a farm with the farm boy and his family.
This was a working dairy farm, so there were plenty of cows which had to be milked at least twice a day. The city boy returned home and was invited to lunch at the local Kiwanis Club which had sponsored the exchange program. The city boy gave a short presentation about his week on the dairy farm One club member asked the city boy how he liked milking all those cows.
The whole club listened carefully and erupted with laughter when the boy unknowingly said. "Well it was good at first, but it sure got teatious, I mean tedious, after awhile."
