The Mystic


In a dark and hazy room, peering into a crystal ball, the
           Mystic delivered grave news:

         
"There's no easy way to tell you this, so I'll just be
           blunt. Prepare yourself to be a widow. Your husband will
           die a violent and horrible death this year."
 
           Visibly shaken, Carol stared at the woman's lined face,
           then at the single flickering candle, then down at her hands.
 
           She took a few deep breaths to compose herself - and to
           stop her mind racing. She simply had to know.
 
           She met the Fortune Teller's gaze, steadied her voice and
           asked, "Will I be acquitted?"
 
          [For some reason, women tend to like this joke a lot.]
 
Thanks Hal

Probably good that a lot of people can't know this detail in advance. :) LOL

Miss Tick? Isn't that who Mr. Tick eventually marries?

More husbands than anyone realizes need to be wearing helmets and body armor around the house.

Just like Bob when he plays Dodgeball.

LL, I've heard it asked often.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Adrienne, I even warn of that somewhere on my sidebar.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Abelle. I hope not.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Sandee, thank you so much. I've been running around here the last couple of months and having been keeping up with my duties.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Marcia, that's why I sleep with one eye open.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Proof, you know the Ticks too?

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Timothy, We all need to keep covered up.

Unless the answer is, "No".

Z said...

very funny! Now wonder husbands are known to die earlier than the wives!

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

edutcher, I guess that's one of those stay tuned moments.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Z, we die of a stiff neck from looking over our shoulder.
