Secret to a Long Marriage


I was at an antique store last week and I overheard an elderly lady talking to the woman at the cash register about the fact that she and her husband were buying an object in celebration of their 47 years of marriage. It was a wooden Irish spoon that hangs on the wall.

The owner of the store said, "Oh my!  This is so precious!" I heard a lot of "Ooohs" and "Aaaaah! Thats so sweet." Then I heard the lady ask the couple "What is the secret to your marriage?" The older lady said, without even a thought, "I have kept his stomach full and his balls empty!" I was absolutely shocked and then it hit me - "Damn, she's right!" It sounded like something you would say. 

Love ya and thank you for what you do.
