....while shopping with the wife.

Post by gobium » Wed Jan 03, 2018 10:51 am

Me and the Wife doing Christmas Shopping
We were in a busy shopping center just before Christmas. My wife suddenly noticed that I was missing and as we had a lot to do, so she called him on the mobile.
"She said " Where are you, you know we have lots to do."
I said "You remember the jewelers we went into about 30 years ago, and you fell in love with that diamond necklace? I could not afford it at the time and I said that one day I would get it for you?"
Little tears started to flow down her cheek and she got all
choked up…
"Yes, I do remember that shop." she replied.
"Well I am in the new Ural sidecar dealdership,. next door to that."

Yeep, the new Ural dealership in Costa Rica is just 3 shops down the road from Porsche dealership in Santa Ana...
I better do not tell my wife. Couldn't afford such a necklace.

Just all relationship I have with Porsche is, that the year I was born, my father used to drive a VW Beadle with Porsche motor.
For sure it was way faster then my first 4 wheeler, which was a beadle too.

Never criticize a man until you've walked a mile in his shoes. Then he'll be a mile away and he'll have no shoes.

I was reflecting on my 50 yr wedding anniversary and feeling pretty virile, accomplished and studly. I told my wife " you know honey 50 yrs ago we rented a shabby apartment, drove a crappy car and had no bank account. But I couldn't care less because I had you. The hottest little 23 yr. old to sleep with every night. I was so happy then.
Today we own a $750k home, to $45k cars and enough money in the bank to retire for life. BUT I'm sleeping with a worn 73 yr old. I dont think you've kept up your end of the deal.
She replied. That's ok honey. You go out and get a hot 23 year old. Then you can have that little apartment, junker car and no money.

Women. Gotta love them. Don't try to understand them because you will never figure why they chose you. Don't ever be right nor ever think you want to be.
