Oftentimes you have to postpone doing things that you can’t afford, or never do them at all. Once you do get around to doing them though, the feeling is made all the sweeter by the long anticipation – but sometimes things don’t exactly go according to plan…
Henry and his wife Vicky went to the state fair every year, and every year Vicky would say, “Henry, I’d like to ride in that helicopter.”
Henry always replied, “I know Vicky, but that helicopter ride is 50 dollars – and 50 dollars is 50 dollars”.
One year Henry and Vicky went to the fair, and Vicky said, “Henry, I’m 85 years old. If I don’t ride that helicopter, I might never get another chance.”
Henry replied, “Vicky that helicopter is 50 dollars – and 50 dollars is 50 dollars”.
The pilot overheard the couple and said, “Folks, I’ll make you a deal. I’ll take the both of you for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and not say a word, I won’t charge you! But if you say one word, it’s 50 dollars.”
Henry and Vicky agreed and up they went. The pilot did all kinds of fancy maneuvers, but not a word was heard. He did his daredevil tricks over and over again, but still not a word. When they landed, the pilot turned to Vicky and said, “By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell out, but you didn’t. I’m impressed!”
Vicky replied, “Well, to tell you the truth, I almost said something when Henry fell out, but you know – 50 dollars is 50 dollars.”
