How Are Your Children

Two friends who hadn’t seen each other in years met in a supermarket.  One woman asked, “Tell me Ruth, how is your son George?”

“He’s getting along fine,” Ruth replied.  “He’s a poet.  He just received his master’s degree in literature from the university.”

“And what about Mary?”

“She’s just as smart as George,” Ruth replied.  “She graduated from college with a degree in modern art.”

“Wonderful!”  “And how about little Freddy?”  What is he doing?”

“Well, Ruth,” she said, “Freddy is still Freddy.”  “He wouldn’t go to college –  he became a plumber instead.  If it weren’t for him, we’d all be starving.”
