Talking The proper use of prepositions

Harry is getting along in years and finds that he is unable to perform
sexually. He finally goes to his doctor who tries a few things, but
nothing seems to work. So the doctor refers him to an American Indian
medicine man.

The medicine man says, "I can cure this." With that said, he throws a
white powder in a flame, and there is a flash with billowing blue smoke.

Then he says, "This is powerful medicine but you can only use it once a
year. All you have to do is say '123,' and it shall rise for as long as
you wish!"

The man then asks, "What happens when it's over, and I don't want to

The medicine man replies: "All you or your partner has to say is 1234, and
it will go down. But be warned: It will not work again for another year."

Harry rushes home, anxious to try out his new powers and prowess.

That night he is ready to surprise his wife. He showers, shaves, and puts
on his most exotic shaving lotion and cologne. After he gets into bed and
is lying next to her, he says, "123" and suddenly he becomes more aroused
than anytime in his life, just as the medicine man had promised.

His wife, who had been facing away from him, turns over and asks, "What did
you say 123 for?"

And now you know why you shouldn't end a sentence with a preposition.
