A Dream for Next Year

Next Year in ... Albuquerque!   A 62-year-old man in New Mexico calls his son in New York and says, "I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing. Thirty-seven years of misery is enough.“

"Dad, what are you talking about?" the son screams.

"We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the oldish man says. "We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Boston and tell her," and he hangs up.

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone, "Like heck they're getting divorced," she shouts, "I'll take care of this."

She calls her father immediately and screams at the oldish man, "You are NOT getting divorced! Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow.  Grandma is coming with us.  Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?" and hangs up.

The oldish man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife.

"Okay," he says. 
"They're coming for Passover and paying their own airfares."
