Frank and Ernest by Thaves for October 23, 2005
"My friend, Ernie, is the world's biggest optimist! He can put a positive spin on ANYthing! Watch this..." "Hi, Ernie...How's your romance with Ernestine going?" "Fantastic!...Apparently, she thinks it's heating up! She says in her mind it's gone from the back burner right into the incinerator." "I think I'm improving the quality of her life! She said that after going out with me, she'll have much higher standards in the future..." "...And I must be teaching her a lot! She says if she's learned one thing from starting our relationship, it's how to live with her mistakes." "And it's a big relief to me to know that she's not a materialistic person!" "'Not materialistic'?" "Right! She said she wouldn't marry me for all the money in the world!"
