Good News!

Posted on March 3, 2011


Whenever we attend a family get-together and somebody says they have good news to share, my wife and I shout out, “We’re getting a divorce!”

The rest of the evening is spent trying to talk us out of it and always ends with us agreeing to maybe give it one more chance.  On the way out I turn and say, “Oh, I’m sorry.  Did somebody have some good news to share?”

Nobody ever does.

Of course my wife and I will reconcile in a week or two…or maybe even sooner if we hear somebody else has good news.
