Free meat

It was many years ago since the embarrassing day whena young woman, with a baby in her arms, entered hisbutcher shop and confronted him with the news that thebaby was his and asked what was he going to do aboutit?Finally he offered to provide her with free meat untilthe boy was 16. She agreed.He had been counting the years off on his calendar,and one day the teenager who had been collecting themeat each week, came into the shop and said, "I'll be 16 tomorrow." "I know," said the butcher with a smile, "I've beencounting too, tell your mother, when you take thisparcel of meat home, that it is the last free meatshe'll get, and watch the expression on her face." When the boy arrived home he told his mother. Thewoman nodded and said, "Son, go back to the butcherand tell him I have also had free bread, free milk,and free groceries for the last 16 years and watch theexpression on HIS face!"
