The lay-about

Betty Jones went home from doing the shopping and said to her husband Tom, “Guess who I ran into at the shopping centre today?”
“No, who?”
” Maisie Smith! Haven’t seen them since they shifted. ”
“Yeah, it’s been a while. What’s  she doing back here?”
“Just on a holiday.”
‘”What about that lay-about son of hers…what’s he up to?”
“Doing well apparently. She said he’s really turned his life around … he’s doing meditation now.”
“Meditation!” said Tom. “You don’t say! Good on him!”

Then Tom said, “Eh, what’s meditation?”

“Don’t know,” said Betty, “but it’s better than sitting around doing nothing!”
