The Half Diet
Shirley Sharfman was in a diet club and was lamenting the fact that she was gaining weight. “Oy,” sighed Shirley, “I made my family's favorite chocolate cake for Shabbos. At dinner the family had half of it, but then when I woke up Shabbos morning, no one was around. I kept staring at the other half, until finally I cut a thin slice. One slice led to another, and soon the whole cake was gone!
“I was so disappointed with my lack of willpower, and I knew how disappointed my husband would be….”
Everyone in the diet group commiserated. “What did your husband say when he found out?” asked one of the members of the group.
Shirley smiled. "He never found out. I made another cake and ate half!"
