A couple go to a marriage guidance counsellor. The counsellor asks the man what is wrong. “We just don’t seem to communicate any more.” he says. The counsellor turns to the woman. She launches into a tirade. He is always out. He does not help round the house. We never go out, etc. The counsellor, a young man, gets up from his chair. Walks round his desk. Stands in front of the woman and asks her to stand. He says “You are a beautiful woman”. Takes her in his arms and kisses her passionately. He asks her to sit down, walks back to his seat and says to the husband, “That is what your wife needs, at least three times a week. Do you think you can manage that?” The husband replies, “Well, Monday and Wednesday are OK, but she will have to find her own way here on Friday.”
My thanks to HT for sending me that.
If you feel a little misled by the title I have used on this page, then please blame the on-line course I have just finished on “Writing for the Web”. My take-away message from that course was ‘make your title snappy’!
