That's about the dumbest thing he's ever done, right? NO!!

A man who flew his own plane, or so the story goes, got tired of the long car trip from the airport to his home which was situated out on a lovely lake. So he equipped his plane with pontoons so he could land on the lake in front of his place.

However, on his first trip with his newly equipped plane, he headed for the airport as he had always done. As he was going in for the landing his terrified wife yelled, "What are you doing? You can't land on the runway! You don't have wheels!"

Fortunately, he was able to swing his plane around and head for the lake. After he landed safely, he heaved a big sigh of relief and turned to his wife and said, 'That's about the dumbest thing I've ever done!'

Then he opened the door, stepped out of his plane—and fell directly into the lake.

How quickly we forget.

Snicker. How like life!

My mother-in-law was visiting us in Germany. She made a purchase at a local market, and handed the change to her husband, saying "you hold this so I don't lose it." She took 3 steps, turned around patting her pockets frantically and said "What did I do with the change???"

I didn't feel so bad about being forgetful myself!
