What do you call fancy swearing? Cursive

 I'm a bit late.  Haven't done my Spanish.  Was busy roasting coffee.  Walked Mr Dog before the rains hit.  Even took a walk on my own. 

Wow.  Well it really is the routines that make life enjoyable, right?  And hey, if you're going to have coffee in the morning, have the best.

Grandson's Boomerang

A young man was visiting his grandparents for the holidays. He decided to surprise them by bringing a gift: a boomerang he bought from a souvenir shop. He thought it would be fun to teach his grandpa how to throw it.

He went outside with his grandpa and showed him the boomerang. "This is a special toy from Australia," he explained. "You throw it and it comes back to you."

"Really?" his grandpa asked, intrigued. "How does it work?"

"Well, you just have to hold it like this, and then swing your arm and let it go," the young man demonstrated. "Watch."

He threw the boomerang and waited for it to return. But it didn't. It flew away and disappeared into the trees.

"Oops," the young man said, embarrassed. "Maybe I did something wrong. Let me try again."

He took out another boomerang from his backpack and threw it. Again, it didn't come back. It landed somewhere far away.

"Sorry, grandpa," the young man said, feeling foolish. "I guess these boomerangs are defective. I should have bought something else."

His grandpa smiled and patted his shoulder. "Don't worry, son," he said. "It's the thought that counts. And you know what? I have a gift for you too."

"Really? What is it?" the young man asked, curious.

His grandpa reached into his pocket and pulled out a phone. He handed it to the young man and said, "It's a boomer rang. You call me and I'll call you back."
