Leslie was the nosy neighbor. She was legend. Nobody could spread gossip faster. So, when the day of her birthday party arrived, everyone was there, on time and with a present.
Cindy, who won “Best Yard of the Month” almost every month, handed the Leslie a gift.
Leslie shook it, held it up and said, “I bet I know what it is – it’s some flowers!”
“That’s right!” smiled Cindy.
Sally, who baked the best cookies and cakes in the land, handed Leslie a gift.
She held it up, shook it and said. “I bet I know what it is – it’s a box of cookies!”
“That’s right!” Sally said.
The next gift was from Dina, the woman Leslie had labeled as a ‘closet alcoholic.’
Leslie held it up and saw that it was leaking. She touched a drop with her finger and tasted it. “Is it wine?” she asked.
Dina shook her head.
Leslie touched another drop to her tongue.
“Is it champagne?” she asked.
“No,” Dina answered.
Finally, Leslie said, “I give up. What is it?”
Dina replied, “A puppy!”
Yes, it’s a Classic!
