Having just moved to town, Gladys Dunn decided that on the first Sunday, she’d
visit the church nearest to her new apartment. She found herself in a

people stood up for the final hymn.
After the service, to be social, she turned to the still sleepy-looking
gentleman next to her, extended her hand in greeting, and said, “Hello,
I’m Gladys Dunn.”
The gentleman replied, “You and me both!”
