Jim grabbed his suitcase off the airport luggage carousel and headed outside to hail a taxi. A taxi promptly picked him up and they were on their way. Twenty minutes into the ride, Jim had a question for the taxi driver. “Excuse me sir,” said Jim tapping the driver on the shoulder.

“AHHHHHHH!” screamed the taxi driver, swerving the taxi across three lanes of traffic. He finally stopped the car on the opposite shoulder. “What the heck was that all about?” demanded Jim, thoroughly shaken. “I’m sorry,” said the taxi driver, wiping his brow. “This is my first day on the job. I’ve been driving a hearse for the last fifty years!”

Edward was lying on his deathbed and the family was taking turns spending time with him. As he was speaking to his young granddaughter Emily, Edward suddenly smelled an all too familiar smell. Why it was his favorite – apple pie! His wife Sandy must have been baking it for him to enjoy this one last time.

“Emily dear,” asked Edward. “Would you please go ask Grandma for a slice of that apple pie? It smells so delicious!” Emily ran off to fulfill her dying Grandfather’s last wish. A moment later, Emily returned empty handed.

“Where’s my pie?” questioned Edward. “Grandma said it’s not for now,” responded Emily, “It’s for the funeral.”

A Good Goodbye
