Best Story of the Week

I’m coming out of Panera early in the morning after having my weekly whole wheat bagel smothered in butter and honey, when I see two pigeons having a fight.

The street’s pretty empty except for me and a chubby Latino lady, so I turn to her and say, “Look at them going at it…you know they must be married.”

Well, this woman started to laugh so hard I thought she’d explode.

“That is so funny,” she said, “I bet you’re right. I fight with my husband all the time. I just hope she doesn’t throw-em out like I have to throw out mine once in a while, to teach-em a lesson.”

I left her, still laughing, her cheeks puffed like big, tanned tomatoes.

If you go by her, I could’a had a helluva career…in the Catskills.  🙂


About Susannah Bianchi

I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves. My eBooks, A New York Diary, Model Behavior: Friends For Life and Notes From A Working Cat can be found on Thanks.

  2. Your humor is contagious, explosively so in this case. Wish I could have seen and heard the exchange.

    Susannah, you made her day. I bet she’s still chuckling over your comment.
    Every now and then it’s funny how we make a humorous remark that sends others into over the top spasms. Last week I had a late lunch with a rowdy group of six in the teacher’s lounge. They must have been primed from previous innuendos, because when I added to one of their Viagra comments they went hysterical and told me I could eat with them anytime.
    I can picture that women imagining her husband and herself as squirrels.

  4. I think I would have proposed! It’s such a good feeling when you can make someone laugh.
