Broken Lawn Mower
Marriage is a relationship
in which one person is always right,
and the other is usually the husband.
When our lawn mower broke and wouldn't run,
My wife kept hinting to me that
I should get it fixed.
But, somehow I always had something
else to take care of first:
the truck, the car, e-mail,
fishing. Always Something more important to me.
Finally she thought of a clever way to make her point.
When I arrived home one day,
I found her seated in the tall grass,
busily snipping away with a tiny pair
of sewing scissors.
I watched silently for a short time
and then went into the house.
I was gone only a few minutes.
When I came out again I handed her a toothbrush.
"When you finish cutting the grass,"
I said, "you might as well sweep the driveway."
The doctors say I will walk again,
but I will always have a limp.
