Time to say goodbye

A devout Catholic  carpet layer had been working hard all day on Ascension Day installing wall-to-wall carpet.

When he noticed a lump under the carpet in the centre of the living room, he felt his shirt pocket for his pack of cigarettes, and sure enough, they were gone.

He wasn’t about to undo all his hard work for a pack of cigarettes, so he got a two-by-four and tamped down the lump until it was smooth.

He packed up his tools and carried them to the truck. Then two things happened simultaneously. He saw his cigarettes on the front seat, and the lady of the house called to him, “Have you seen my budgie anywhere?”

“He must have got out” lied the carpet-fitter,”and flown skyward; but with this being  the Feast of the Ascension,let’s pray that he’s in a better place!
