A Little Sweet Tea and Sass has a new face lift this week...would love to hear what you think of it so when you stop laughing let me know!!!
And now for a little story that was shared with me this week that sure made me laugh...
On their wedding night, the young bride approached her new husband and asked for $20.00 for their first lovemaking encounter.
Her husband readily agreed.
This scenario was repeated each time they made love, for more than 40 years, with him thinking that it was a cute way for her to afford new clothes and other incidentals that she needed.
Arriving home around one day, she was surprised to find her husband in a very drunken state.
During the next few minutes, he explained that his employer was going through a process of corporate downsizing, and he had been let go. It was unlikely that, at the age of 59, he'd be able to find another position that paid anywhere near what he’d been earning, and therefore, they were financially ruined.
Calmly, his wife handed him a bank book which showed more than forty years of steady deposits and interest totaling nearly $1 million. Then she showed him certificates of deposits issued by the Bank which were worth over $2 million, and informed him that they were one of the largest depositors in the bank.
Faced with evidence of cash and investments, Worth over $3 million, her husband was so astounded he could barely speak, but finally he found his voice and blurted out, "If I'd had any idea what you were doing,I would have given you all my business!"
That’s when she shot him!
You know, sometimes, men just don't know when to keep their mouths shut!
