There was a nice lady who was a little old-fashioned. She was planning a weeks vacation in Florida at a particular campground, but she wanted to make sure of the accommodations.
Uppermost in her mind were toilet facilities, but she couldn't bring herself to write "toilet" in a letter. After considerable deliberation, she settled on "bathroom commode", but when she wrote that down it still sounded too forward. So, in her letter to the campground, and referred to the bathroom commode as the 'B.C.'. Does the campground have it's own "B.C.?" is what she actually wrote.
The campground owner was baffled. He showed the letter around to several of the campers, but they couldn't decipher it either. Finally, the owner figured she was referring to the location of the local baptist church: so, he sat down and wrote back to her as follows:
I regret very much the delay in answering your letter, but I now take the pleasure in informing you that the 'B.C.' is located nine miles north of the campgrounds, and is capable of seating 250 people at one time. I admit it is quite a distance away, if you are in the habit of going regularly, but, no doubt, you will be pleased to know that a great number of people take their lunches along and make a day of it. They usually arrive early and stay late. The last time my wife and I went was six years ago. It was so crowded we had to stand up the whole time we were there. It may interest you to know that right now there is a supper planned to raise money to buy more seats. They're going to hold it in the basement of the 'B.C.! I would like to say it pains me very much not to be able to go more regularly, it is no lack of desire on my part. As we grow older, it seems to be more effort--particularly in cold weather. If you decide to come to our campground, perhaps I could go with you the first time. I'd sit with you and introduce you to all the other folks. Remember, this is a friendly community!! Hope to see you soon.
