Saturday Smile

The husband was sitting at the breakfast table, where he could be found sitting every morning when the wife came in to make breakfast. As she began to make the coffee, prepare the breakfast and take care of the chores, he continued to read without so much as acknowledging her presence.

As he read the sports page he came across an article about a football player who was known to not be the brightest person in the league and his lack of common sense. AS the wife sat his steaming coffee in front of him, he remarked, “I’ll never understand why the biggest jerks get the most attractive women.”

The wife smiled and quietly said, “Thank you, dear.”

There are lots of things in this world hard to understand. One of them is us.
