Sorry in advance if this has been posted before, but it's Friday, it's raining, and it's cold here so I figured some folks could use a little laugh ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Life is a matter of perspective. One day a man comes home from work feeling very good about his day at work. He decides to pick some flowers for his wife from there garden. Also, he prepares a meal for both of them. He goes on to prepare a hot bubble bath with candle light for his wife. Afterwards he gives his wife a back massage. Later that night while in bed, the husband starts to feel romantic, no surprise to the wife. His wife responds accordingly for several minutes, and then she says I don't feel like making love tonight. The husband jaw drops; mouth wide open, the wife says I just want you to hold me. The husband could only respond with, what? The wife replies you don't understand me and you are not in tune with my emotional needs. The following weekend the husband and wife are out shopping at a major upscale department store. The husband is helping his wife pick out a new dress. She finds a dress she likes but can't decide on which color to buy. The husband says, get all three. She smiles in shock and begins to walk over to the shoe department. While in the shoe department she finds herself in the same dilemma as before, which pair of shoes to get. Again the husband says; get a pair for each dress. The wife smiles again with bright eyes. The husband notices the wife becomes very emotional and starts to get that romantic look. As they move toward the cash register they pass the jewelry counter, the husband stops and picks out a pair of diamond earrings for his wife. The wife starts eyeing a diamond tennis bracelet, the husband thinks to himself (you don't play tennis) but says, why don't get that too. The wife is excited and completely turn-on by her husband's generosity. The wife is smiling while carrying her dresses, shoes, diamond earrings and tennis bracelet to the cash register. The salesperson rings all the merchandise up and turns to the husband for payment. The husband replies I don't feel like buying anything today, the wife face drops in shock. The husband says I just wanted to enjoy watching you hold everything. The wife screams what?! The husband replies, you don't understand me and you are not in tune with my financial needs and responsibilities.
