Dugan and Mrs. Riley were talking one day about Mr. Riley and his constant
drinking. Mrs. Dugan said, "I have an idea about how to stop him from

family had left him. Depressed and

suicide. Suddenly, he sensed that
someone was behind him, and turning around he saw an ugly little old lady leprechaun.
"Don't jump," she
said, “and I'll grant you three wishes."
"Right," he said. "my
first wish is to have $100,000."
She said, "When you check
your account, you will find that you are in credit to that amount."
He then said, "My second
wish is to have my wife and children back."
She said, "They will be there
when you get home."
He said, "My third wish
is to be tall and handsome."
She said, When you look in the
mirror, you will find that your wish has been granted." Then she added, "I want you to do
something in return for me. I want you
to kiss me."
He looked at her and shuddered
at the thought. But under the

you have the plans, I've got the lumber."
One night a man and his wife are in bed when the
man hears a knock on his door, so he gets up and opens it. Standing there is a
very drunk guy who asks the homeowner to give him a push. "What!" the
homeowner yells in an angry voice and promptly slams the door in the drunk's
He goes back upstairs and gets back in bed, and his wife asks him who it
was. "Just a guy wanting a push," the husband says.
you help him?" the woman asks.
"Because it's 3:30 in the
morning!" the husband yells.
The wife, slightly angry now, says,
"Remember that time our car broke down and someone was nice enough to help
us in the middle of the night? I think you should help him."
now, the husband gets back up, gets dressed, and goes outside. Not seeing the
