The “slip”pery SIGMUND FREUD …

Whenever anyone mentions Freud, (like they did today) I am reminded of this story about my late friends Sally and her husband Tom, a retired psychologist. 

They'd moved south from Ohio and, almost as soon as the neighbors saw they were settled they started talking about their annual Halloween party. It wasn’t even October but evidently this was a yearly couples event that everyone took very seriously. They planned months in advance and just one prize was awarded. It went to the twosome wearing the most imaginative costume

This would have been overwhelming to a lot of people but Sally and Tom had a great sense of humor and it wasn’t long before they hit upon the idea that did, indeed, make them the winners of the coveted prize that year. In order to get the true effect you have to picture Sally. She was quite an imposing female...very tall & slim with lips painted a bright red and a booming voice to match.

Her costume was nothing special, just a long sleeved turtle neck sweater, tights and high heels (all in black) and topped by a simple pink slip. That was it.

Her husband wore a conservative black suit, white shirt and black tie; but he added a little gray fringe beard and a mustache. The headband he wore declared him to be Sigmund Freud.

And who was Sally?         FREUDIAN’s SLIP of course !!
