Sit down, calm down. Take a deep breath. Tell me what happened.
It's awful. She left me. My wife left me ...
What do you mean?
She just got up this morning and left me. And she took my sausages.
Yes, she left me and took my sausages.
I don't understand.
What is there not to understand? After all these weeks of marriage it is all over. My wife left me and took my sausages.
It's the sausages bit I don't understand.
They were in the fridge. A new recipe I just invented. I was going to try them out on my customers today and now they're gone. She may even sell them to another butcher.
I understand ... I think ...
It's terrible. A disaster. My sausages are gone. What shall I do? My life is over.
Ehm ... if you don't mind me saying so ... you seem more worried about your sausages than your wife leaving you.
What do you mean?
Tell me ... if your wife had left you this morning but not taken the sausages how would you feel?
Eh? I don't understand ...
Do you love your wife?
Of course I do!
Do you love your sausages?
Yes, of course I do!
Who do you love the most? Your wife, or your sausages?
... ... ... ... ... I'm thinking ... ... ... I'm thinking ... ... ...
...my sweetheart has been my wife for over 53 years!ReplyDelete
CONGRATULATIONS Tom. Best wishes to you and your wife. Wishing you many more years filled with happiness, good health, and whatever you desire.Delete
God bless you both and your family.
Haha, there sure is some real DEEP thinking in order...!
But it might often be true that 'things' around a person, or money or whatever is what bonds more.
Not the real foundation for an enduring marriage!
Thank you, Mariette. Yes, often marriage is based on other than true love and mutual respect.Delete
God bless always.
Hahaha! Now, if it were rib-eye steaks gone missing .....ReplyDelete
Oh ... I love rib-eye steak!!!Delete
God bless you, Mevely.
They must have been some award winning sausages. :-)ReplyDelete
Exactly ... worth more than a marriage.Delete
God bless, Bill.
I think this guy has his priorities mixed up, that's for sure!ReplyDelete
Yes, they both have their priorities mixed up. Did she marry him for his sausages? Does he love his sausages more than her?Delete
God bless, Martha.
I think I know that butcher, the guy thinking......, At least marriages like that.ReplyDelete
Thanks for inviting us over, enjoyed the visit.
Sherry & I, still over here but thinking......
Sadly, many marriages are based on possessions rather than love and mutual respect.Delete
Glad to see you visiting here again my friend.
God bless you, Jack and Sherry.
Decisions Decisions!! :)ReplyDelete
I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not so sure.Delete
God bless, Happyone.
But it was a new sausage recipe! There might have been a lot of fame and notoriety in it :-)ReplyDelete
Yes, to both of them that was more important than their marriage.Delete
God bless, Kathy.
Hm, a man has to have his sausages...ReplyDelete
Thanks for the fun story.
Sausages are important.Delete
God bless you, Mimi.
When a wife leaves you it seems like the worst thing ever, and then it turns out it is not only addition by subtraction, but probably saved your life...just commenting for a friend.ReplyDelete
I understand what you mean, JoeH. You are wise indeed.Delete
God bless always.
I'd be worried that some other butcher might learn the secret recipe that went into the sausages. For that I'd be angry at the wife.ReplyDelete
True ... the priorities of life!Delete
God bless, River.
