A woman was walking down the street when she was accosted by a
particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless woman who asked
her for a couple of pounds for dinner.
The woman took out her purse, extracted ten pounds and asked,
"If I give you this money, will you buy some wine with it instead of dinner?"
"No, I had to stop drinking years ago", the homeless woman replied.
"Will you use it to go shopping instead of buying food?" the woman asked
"No, I don't waste time shopping", the homeless woman said."I need
to spend all my time trying to stay alive."
"Will you spend this at a beauty salon instead of food?" the woman
continued
"Are you NUTS?" replied the homeless woman. "I haven't had my hair done in 20 years!"
"Well," said the woman, "I'm not going to give you the money. Instead, I'm going to take you out for dinner with my hubby tonight."
The homeless woman was astounded. "Won't your husband be furious with you for doing that? I know I'm dirty, and I probably smell
pretty disgusting."


The woman replied, "That's okay. It's important for him to see what
a woman looks like after she has given up shopping, beauty salons and drinking good wine."
