Saturday’s Smile.

Woman: Wow, you have done an excellent job with my facial. How many years’ experience do you have?

Beautician: Actually, this is my first day as a beautician. I was washing utensils in a few households till yesterday!

 

Origin of the word OKAY.

Folks, I feel mighty relieved to-day. Decades of my toil researching the origins of the word ‘OKAY’ has borne fruits!

But all that is known, we have read about it on Google, you might say.

No, no. All that Google says is merely hypothesis, whereas what I am going to present before you are facts revealed personally to me by none else than the fifth generation descendant of the person who invented the word!

Oskar Krause of Germany migrated to the U.S.A. in the early 19th century, looking for greener pastures. Employed in a factory, he was in charge of certifying all the goods prior to shipment, which he did by just initialing them with the first two letters of his name… OK!  This stuck, and the rest, as they say, is history!

I got this information from Karl, a very dear friend of mine and who happens to be a fifth generation descendant of Oskar Krause. The funny part of the entire story is that all this research work would not have been necessary, had I just opened my mouth before Karl, whom I have known for over six decades!!! Now, can you beat that?!
