Decanter

DECANTER, n. A vessel whose functions are most envied by the human stomach.

My father was a decanter. Almost every thing he said was "can't do this", "can't do that"!

It's Fable Friday!
Time to Play
Fantastic Fables!
by Ambrose Bierce

The Foolish Woman

A Married Woman,
whose lover was about to reform by running away,
procured a pistol and shot him dead.

"Why did you do that, Madam?" inquired a Policeman, sauntering by.

"Because," replied the Married Woman, "he was a wicked man, and had purchased a ticket
to Chicago."

"My sister," said an adjacent Man of God, solemnly,
"you cannot stop the wicked from going
to Chicago
by killing them."
