Three sisters were all getting married within a short time period.
Mum was a bit worried about how their life would get started and made them all promise to send a postcard from the honeymoon with a few words on their first impressions of marital status.
The first girl sent a card from Hawaii two days after the wedding.
The card said nothing but: “Nescafe”.
Puzzled at first Mum went to her kitchen and got out the Nescafe jar.
It said: “Great from beginning to end”. Mum blushed but was pleased for her daughter.
The second girl sent the card from the Maldives a week after the wedding and the card read: “Rothmans”.
Mum now knew to go straight to her husband’s cigarettes to read from the pack: “Super strong King Size”.
She was again slightly embarrassed but still happy for her daughter..
the third girl departed for her honeymoon in New Zealand.
Mum waited for a week, Nothing. Another week went by and still nothing. A month passed; still nothing.
A card finally arrived from Auckland on which was written with a shaky hand, “Air New Zealand “.
Mum took out her latest travel magazine, flipped through the pages fearing the worst and finally found the ad for Air NZ.
‘Ten times a day, seven days a week, in all directions.’
