A newlywed couple were having one of their first upsets after the wife prepared what turned out to be a rather disastrous meal.
Her husband was trying to console his new wife, who lay sprawled on the couch, totally frustrated with herself, embarrassed and sobbing uncontrollably.
No matter what her husband said, she just kept on crying, both loud and unceasingly.
“Darling” he finally implored her, “Believe me, I never said that you were a terrible cook. I merely pointed out that our garbage disposal has developed an ulcer”.
I have been rather lucky when it comes to home cooked meals, only having had a few in my life that were really bad! My first wife tried to make scones once, but they didn’t rise and were flat, more like pancakes. I tried to make a joke about it, but she never forgave me and never attempted to make them again.
