A well dressed lady was approached by a homeless woman one day on the street. The homeless woman asked for a few dollars for something to eat. The
lady pulled a $10 from her purse and then asked the woman, "If I give you this, are you going to buy wine instead of dinner?"
"No, I had to give up drinking a long time ago," said the woman.
"Well, if I give you this, are you going to go shopping for clothes instead of eating?"
"No way. It is all I can do just to stay alive on the streets."
"Well, if I give you this, are you going to get your hair done instead of having a meal?"
"No, I have not even washed my hair in over a month. Why would I do that, I am just hungry."
"Well," said the lady, "I am not going to give you this $10. Instead I am going to take you to dinner with my husband and me tonight."
The woman said, "Are you sure you want to do that? I am so dirty and I smell awful."
"Oh, that's OK. My husband needs to see what happens to a woman who gives up wine, shopping and having her hair done!"
