Perfect Moments

The Perfect Wife

The other evening, with a nearly-empty glass of gin in hand, Peter told me that I am the perfect wife. Since I know that that is not true, I asked him what makes a wife perfect.

His answer:

  1. She keeps you from eating things that are bad for you, like Italian sausages.
  1. She shames you into exercising by setting a good example.
  1. She tolerates your imperfections.
  1. She tells you when your fly is unzipped.
  1. She loves you in spite of everything.

Fortunately he didn’t ask me what makes a perfect husband.

Peter is a "keeper". Sounds like you have a perfect marriage. :-)
