The local news station was interviewing an 80 year old lady because she had gotten married for the fourth time. The interviewer asked her questions about her life, about what it felt like to be married again at 80, and then about her new husbands occupation.
He’s a funeral director, she answered.
Interesting the newsman thought… He then asked her if she wouldn’t mind telling him a little bit about her first three husbands and what they did for a living.
She paused for a few moments, needing time to reflect on all those years. After a short time, a smile came on her face and she answered proudly, explaining that she had first married a banker when she was in her 20’s, then a circus ringmaster when she was in her 40’s, and a preacher when in her 60’s, and now in her 80’s – a funeral director.
The interviewer looked at her, quite astonished, and asked why she had married four men with such diverse careers.
I married one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready and four to go.
