Here's the story I wanted to share with you last week...
After 17 years of marriage, a man dumped his wife for a younger woman. To add insult to injury, the man wanted to keep his downtown luxury apartment so that he and his new love could make it their love nest. The man did promise his wife that he would buy her another play to live.
The wife agreed to these terms and made one request - that she be allowed three days to pack up her things.
On day one, the wife lovingly placed her belongings in boxes, crates and suitcases.
Day two saw the movers come and collect her things.
When the third day arrived, she sat down at the dining room table and treated herself to a last meal.
While soft music played in the background, she dined on a pound of jumbo shrimp and a bottle of expensive Chardonnay.
When she finished, she went into each room and deposited a few of the leftover shrimp into the hollow of the curtain rods. She then cleaned the kitchen and left.
The husband came back with his new girlfriend, ready to begin a new life. Life was good for the first day or two but then, with each new day, a foul odor began to fill the house. They tried everything to rid the place of the smell but nothing worked. Finally, the man and his new girl friend cried "Uncle" and moved out.
The moving company arrived and did a very professional packing job, taking everything to the couple's new home...including the curtain rods!
